Calendar of the Soul

Zeroth Verse
Fiftieth Week

  Thus to the human ego speaks
  In mighty revelation,
  Unfolding its inherent powers,
  The joy of growth throughout the world:
  I carry into you my life
  From its enchanted bondage
  And so attain my truest goal.

English translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Es spricht zum Menschen-Ich,
  Sich machtvoll offenbarend
  Und seines Wesens Kräfte lösend,
  Des Weltendaseins Werdelust:
  In dich mein Leben tragend
  Aus seinem Zauberbanne,
  Erreiche ich mein wahres Ziel.

The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  Disclosing itself whole,
  unfettering its native powers
  zest-of-becoming, latent in the world,
  accosts the `I' of Man:
  `Loosing my life from its enchanter's ban
  by passing it across to thee
  I end at last in my appointed goal.'
