“From heaven above comes sunlight streaming;
Shining, blistening, and gleaming.
My silver crescent-cup is filled,
(Be careful that it is not spilled),
Such joy weaves round me everywhere
In water and earth and in light-filled air.
A wave of joy in me as well
Springs from my heart, a surging swell.
By joy I’m taught my God to know.
I am his child—He tells me so.”

Children live deeply in the experience of the seasons. Their unity with nature is initially unconscious and uncritical, and this "Garden of Eden" consciousness gradually fades as they become more self-aware and confront the outer world as I-beings.

The verses in this book help children bridge the gap from their unconscious connection with nature to a living feeling for the seasons that will stay with them through life.

These verses follow the course of the year, as inspired by Rudolf Steiner’s Calendar of the Soul. The book is arranged so that par­ents, teachers, eurythmists, and chil­dren can follow the course of the year in both the northern and southern hemispheres.

Ages 4 to 9
