Calendar of the Soul
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
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.
