Calendar of the Soul

Minus eleventh Verse
Fortieth Week

  And when I live in spirit depths
  And dwell within my soul's foundations,
  There streams from love-worlds of the heart,
  To fill the vain delusion of the self,
  The fiery power of the cosmic Word.

English translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Und bin ich in den Geistestiefen,
  Erfüllt in meinen Seelengründen
  Aus Herzens Liebewelten
  Der Eigenheiten leerer Wahn
  Sich mit des Weltenwortes Feuerkraft.

The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  Once I am truly in the Spirit's deeps
  straightway from out my soul's foundation --
  from boundless love within the heart -- the fraud,
  the hollow shell of private inclinations
  fills with the might, the fire of the Word.
