The Joy of Spring



Rudolf Steiner's Calendar of the Soul, meditative verse for the week of March 12-19:


Powerfully revealing itself,
and setting loose the forces of its being,
world existence's joy of becoming
speaks to the human "I":
"Into you I bear my life
out of its magic enchantment
and thus attain my goal."





  Es spricht zum Menschen-Ich,
  Sich machtvoll offenbarend
  Und seines Wesens Kräfte lösend,
  Des Weltendaseins Werdelust:
  In dich mein Leben tragend
  Aus seinem Zauberbanne,
  Erreiche ich mein wahres Ziel.
