Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere
Week 44

In reaching for new sense attractions,
Soul-clarity would fill,
Mindful of spirit-birth attained,
The world's bewildering, sprouting growth
With the creative will of my own thinking.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 18

Can I expand my soul
That it unites itself
With cosmic Word received as seed?
I sense that I must find the strength
To fashion worthily my soul
As fitting raiment for the spirit.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

In the collected edition of Rudolf Steiner's works in German, the volume containing the German text is entitled Goethes Naturwissenschaftliche Schriften, Einleitungen, (Vol. I in the Bibliographic Survey). It was originally published as introductions to Goethe's Natural-Scientific Works in Kürschner's Deutsche National Literatur, edited by Rudolf Steiner, with introductions, footnotes, and annotations in four volumes, 1883–1897. Also translated as Goethe the Scientist.

This translation into English was made by William Lindeman, and is presented here with the kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
