Calendar of the Soul

Minus fifth Verse
Forty-fifth Week

  My power of thought grows firm
  United with the spirit's birth.
  It lifts the senses' dull attractions
  To bright-lit clarity.
  When soul-abundance
  Desires union with the world's becoming,
  Must senses' revelation
  Receive the light of thinking.

English translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Es festigt sich Gedankenmacht
  Im Bunde mit der Geistgeburt,
  Sie hellt der Sinne dumpfe Reize
  Zur vollen Klarheit auf.
  Wenn Seelenfülle
  Sich mit dem Weltenwerden einen will,
  Muss Sinnesoffenbarung
  Des Denkens Licht empfangen.

The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  The potency of thought
  is firmed by oneness with the spirit's birth;
  it thrills the vague delights of sense
  to crystal clarity;
  should overflowing soul
  seek with the world's becoming to unite,
  the senses' revelation
  must welcome Thinking's light.
