Calendar of the Soul

[August 19, 2018 - August 25, 2018]
Twenty-first Week

  I feel strange power, bearing fruit
  And gaining strength to give myself to me.
  I sense the seed maturing
  And expectation, light-filled, weaving
  Within me on my selfhood's power.


English translation
by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Ich fühle fruchtend fremde Macht
  Sich stärkend mir mich selbst verleihn,
  Den Keim empfind ich reifend
  Und Ahnung lichtvoll weben
  Im Innern an der Selbstheit Macht.


The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  Ripely I feel a Power not my own
  grow stronger in bestowing Self on me --
  germ becomes fruit,
  its hint at Selfhood's might
  a pondered Intuition spreading light.
