At this moment, nature seems to keep silent still. But in Holland the little crocuses are appearing in the roadside and the public gardens. Looking at it and experiencing what this means, the soul exclaims:
Now the desire to grow, the germinating and growing power of the world-being want to be carried into the human I. As a result, the enchantment in which the spirit of worldliness lies is broken, and these growing forces become accessible to the I.
'Thus speaks to the human I,Revealing itself mightyAnd unfolding the powers of its being,The joy of growth of the worldbeing:Carrying my life into youFrom its enchanted bondageI reach my true goal. 'Es spricht zum Menschen-Ich,Sich machtvoll offenbarendUnd seines Wesens Kräfte lösend,Des Weltendaseins Werdelust:In dich mein Leben tragendAus seinem Zauberbanne,Erreiche ich mein wahres Ziel.
These weekly verses were given by Rudolf Steiner in 1912/1913: Anthroposophischer Seelenkalender, Calendar of the soul.
