Calendar of the Soul

Thirteenth Verse

Thirteenth Week

  And when I live in senses' heights,
  There flames up deep within my soul
  Out of the spirit's fiery worlds
  The gods' own word of truth:
  In spirit sources seek expectantly
  To find your spirit kinship.

English translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Und bin ich den Sinneshöhen,
  So flammt in meinen Seelentiefen
  Aus Geistes Feuerwelten
  Der Götter Wahrheitswort:
  In Geistesgründen suche ahnend
  Dich geistverwandt zu finden.

The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  Now that my senses are at home on high
  I hear my soul re-echo from her depths
  a fiery message from the gods:
  `Welcome the hint, seek thine own deep relation
  to Spirit in the Spirit's own foundation.'
