Calendar of the Soul
(Southern Hemisphere)

Thirty-fifth Verse

Tenth Week

  Can I know life's reality
  So that it's found again
  Within my soul's creative urge?
  I feel that I am granted power
  To make my self, as humble part,
  At home within the cosmic self.

English translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Kann ich das Sein erkennen,
  Dass es sich wiederfindet
  Im Seelenschaffensdrange?
  Ich fühle, dass mir Macht verlieh'n,
  Das eigne Selbst dem Weltenselbst
  Als Glied bescheiden einzuleben.

The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  Can I in such wise know
  Being that, being known,
  it find itself again
  in soul's creative thrust?
  Strength I feel given me in trust
  to have a humble self begin to be
  a member of the Selfhood of the world.
