Calendar of the Soul

[April 22, 2018 - April 28, 2018]
Fourth Week

  I sense a kindred nature to my own:
  Thus speaks perceptive feeling
  As in the sun-illuminated world
  It merges with the floods of light;
  To thinking's clarity
  My feeling would give warmth
  And firmly bind as one
  The human being and the world.

English translation
by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Ich fühle Wesen meines Wesens:
  So spricht Empfindung,
  Die in der sonnerhellten Welt
  Mit Lichtesfluten sich vereint;
  Sie will dem Denken
  Zur Klarheit Wärme schenken
  Und Mensch und Welt
  In Einheit fest verbinden.

The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  `I feel the very Being of my being,'
  so the responsive soul,
  which in a wide world rinsed with radiant sun
  with flowing light grows one;
  imparting warmth to mind's transparency,
  such is her will,
  so knitting man and world in unison.
