Calendar of the Soul

[]
Second Verse
Second Week

  Out in the sense-world's glory
  The power of thought gives up
    its separate being,
  And spirit worlds discover
  Again their human offspring,
  Who germinates in them
  But in itself must find
  The fruit of soul.


English translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Ins Äussre des Sinnesalls
  Verliert Gedankenmacht ihr Eigensein;
  Es finden Geisteswelten
  Den Menschensprossen wieder,
  Der Seinen Keim in ihnen,
  Doch seine Seelenfrucht
  In sich muss finden.



The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield


  The all-embracing outwardness of sense
  invades the sovereignty of separate minds;
  the Spirits of the worlds
  now rediscover budding Man,
  whose soul must look to find in them his seed
  but in herself the yield.
