Midnight Sun and Winter Stars: Verse and Song for Winter Solstice


The Time of the Most Night Brings a Soul Full of Light.

Verse by Rudolf Steiner

Behold the Sun
at midnight.

Build with stones
On lifeless ground.

Find in decline,
In death’s night,
Creation’s new beginning,
Morning’s youthful night.

The heights reveal
The gods’ eternal word.

The depths guard
The peaceful treasure.

Living in darkness,
Create a Sun.
Weaving in matter,
Know Spirit’s delight.

Song: Loved The Stars

Though my soul may set in darkness,
It will rise in perfect light.
I have loved the stars too fondly
To be fearful if the night,
fearful of the night.
