Calendar of the Soul
There will arise out of the world's great womb,
Quickening the senses' life, the joy of growth.
Now may it find my strength of thought
Well armed by powers divine
Which strongly live within my being.
English translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch
Es will erstehen aus dem Weltenschosse,
Den Sinnenschein erquickend, Werdelust.
Sie finde meines Denkens Kraft
Gerüstet durch die Gotteskräfte,
Die kräftig mir im Innern leben.
The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield
Emerging from its covering by the world
zest-of-becoming means to have its way,
to liven up the beauty born of sense;
now let it find my thinking clad in mail,
corroborate by forces from the gods
themselves alive, no weaklings, here within.
