Calendar of the Soul

Minus tenth Verse
Forty-first Week

  The soul's creative might
  Strives outward from the heart's own core
  To kindle and inflame god-given powers
  In human life to right activity;
  The soul thus shapes itself
  In human loving and in human working.

English translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Der Seele Schaffensmacht,
  Sie strebet aus dem Herzensgrunde,
  Im Menschenleben Götterkräfte
  Zu rechtem Wirken zu entflammen,
  Sich selber zu gestalten
  In Menschenliebe und im Menschenwerke.

The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  The soul's creative power
  sent from the bottom of the heart aspires
  the life of man with strength of gods to fire
  for deeds -- for selves to grow into a mould
  formed out of love for and things done for men.
