Calendar of the Soul

Thirty-eighth Verse
Thirty-eighth Week

  The spirit child within my soul
  I feel freed of enchantment.
  In heart-high gladness has
  The holy cosmic Word engendered
  The heavenly fruit of hope,
  Which grows rejoicing into worlds afar
  Out of my being's godly roots.

English translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Ich fühle wie entzaubert
  Das Geisteskind im Seelenschoss;
  Es hat in Herzenshelligkeit
  Gezeugt das Heilige Weltenwort
  Der Hoffnung Himmelsfrucht,
  Die jubelnd wächst in Weltenfernen
  Aus meines Wesens Gottesgrund.

The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  I seem, from trance now free,
  nursed by a soul
                  the Spirit-Child to see,
  the fruit of heaven-ward hope
  in cloudless heart by holy Word begot,
  waxing, triumphing, word-filling,
  my Essence and my God's from whence I spring.
