Calendar of the Soul

[June 17, 2018 - June 23, 2018]
Twelfth Week

  The radiant beauty of the world
  Compels my inmost soul to free
  God-given powers of my nature
  That they may soar into the cosmos,
  To take wing from myself
  And trustingly to seek myself
  In cosmic light and cosmic warmth.


English translation
by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Der Welten Schönheitsglanz,
  Er zwinget mich aus Seelentiefen
  Des Eigenlebens Götterkräfte
  Zum Weltenfluge zu entbinden;
  Mich selber zu verlassen,
  Vertrauend nur mich suchend
  In Weltenlicht und Weltenwärme.


The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  The flush of beauty round the world
  forces my soul to search her depths
  for godlike powers, to set them free
  and send them winging out into the world,
  to leave myself behind me
  in trust that I shall find me
  there in the Light, there in the Warmth again.
