This meditation is from Rudolf Steiner's last lecture: The Individuality of Elias, John, Raphael, Novalis.
Springing from Powers of the Sun,
Radiant Spirit-powers, blessing all Worlds!
For Michael's garment of rays
Ye are predestined by Thought Divine.
He, the Christ-messenger, revealeth in you...
Where No Light Shines
This story is appropriate for younger and older children.
Once upon a time there lived a peasant - a very bad peasant. He was lazy and miserable and he used very bad language. He beat his children and he was cross all the time - in fact he was very vey bad.
So once again the green earth sings
And forthwith gladness each flower springs
Renewal of the heart it brings
This time of Michael
With plant and beast we too shall rise
Each days bright road before us lies
Well face the challenge of the skies
As knights of Michael
