Willing Seeds

RUDOLF STEINER’S CALENDAR OF THE SOUL
translated (with added titles) by Roy Sadler
AUTUMN PRELUDE IV
The Fruit Of Will
v24

In constant self-creation
the soul grows self-aware;
the spirit of the world strives on
in new self-knowledge re-enlivened,
creating from the darkness of the soul
the sense of selfhood’s harvest of the will.

and its October mirror
MICHAELMAS IV
Michaelic Hope
v29

To have the inner fire
to kindle thinking’s radiance
and draw the meaning of experience
from worldwide spirit’s well of power
is now for me the summer’s heritage,
is autumn’s peace and also winter’s hope.
