Calendar of the Soul

Fourteenth Verse
Fourteenth Week


  Surrendering to senses' revelation
  I lost the drive of my own being,
  And dreamlike thinking seemed
  To daze and rob me of myself.
  Yet quickening there draws near
  In sense appearance cosmic thinking.

English translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  An Sinnesoffenbarung hingegeben
  Verlor ich Eigenwesens Trieb,
  Gedankentraum, er schien
  Betäubend mir das Selbst zu rauben,
  Doch weckend nahet schon
  Im Sinnenschein mir Weltendenken.

The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  Captive to all the pageantry of sense
  I lost the pressure of my single being;
  thoughts like to dreams
  were spiriting my self away, it seems;
  now -- now in what the senses make appear
  the Thinking of the World itself draws near.
