Spring Arrival (new poem)

Spring Arrival
by Tim Kavi

you are the bird
outside my window
that sings

you are the snow
that melting
the river brings

you are everything
that arises

in the turning
of the new
you are the living
that love surprises

it is better
to be in your arms
and call them home
than anywhere

it is better
to be kissing
your lips
eye to eye
hair to hair

for your love
and sweet growing
has brought
me to you

Spring Arrival.

  1. Spring Arrival is a stunning work!
    I am an Australian composer who would like to correspond with you about setting this poem for solo voice and piano. Is this an idea that is acceptable to you?
    Best wishes
