Calendar of the Soul

Calendar of the Soul

Minus second Verse
Forty-ninth Week

  I feel the force of cosmic life:
  Thus speaks my clarity of thought,
  Recalling its own spirit growth
  Through nights of cosmic darkness,
  And to the new approach of cosmic day
  It turns its inward rays of hope.

English translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Ich fühle Kraft des Weltenseins:
  So spricht Gedankenklarheit,
  Gedenkend eignen Geistes Wachsen
  In finstern Weltennächten,
  Und neigt dem nahen Weltentage
  Des Innern Hoffnungsstrahlen.

The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  `I feel the puissant Being of the World,'
  so speaks a cloudless mind
  recalling dark World-winter-nights, wherethrough
  its spiritual stature grew,
  and the bright hope within it points it there
  where the new Daylight-of-the-world draws near.
