Spring is like a perhaps hand

(1955)

"Spring is like a perhaps hand" is the second song of Dominick Argento's Songs About Spring cycle, which sets five poems of e. e. cummings.

"Spring is like a perhaps hand" can be found in cummings's 1925 volume &[AND].

Spring is like a perhaps hand
by e. e. cummings


Spring is like a perhaps hand
(which comes carefully
out of Nowhere)arranging
a window,into which people look(while
people stare
arranging and changing placing
carefully there a strange
thing and a known thing here)and


changing everything carefully


spring is like a perhaps
Hand in a window
(carefully to
and fro moving New and
Old things,while
people stare carefully
moving a perhaps
fraction of flower here placing
an inch of air there)and


without breaking anything.
