E.E. Cummings (1894-1962) is one of my favorite poets.

My first contact with his poetry was through a book containing a selection of his most well-known poems.
While reading them, I immediately thought that it would be amazing and challenging to put into music those powerful and, at the same time, delicate words.
My biggest challenge was how to pass on all the underlying emotions of those powerful words and how to describe, through music, all the feelings that those poems evoke in me.

With this album, I want to present my vision of these poems and I really hope to take the listener on a musical journey into the world of E.E. Cummings’ poetry.


1. Dive For Dreams

2. When My Love Comes To See Me

3. It May Not Always Be So

4. Always Before Your Voice My Soul

5. It Is At Moments After I Have Dreamed

6. Because You Take Life In Your Stride

7. I Have Loved Let Us See If That’s All

8. I Have Seen Her A Stealthily Frail

9. It May Not Always Be So (Orchestral Version)

In my opinion, “It may not always be so”, is one of the most beautiful poems ever written and it is my Cummings’ favorite poem:

it may not always be so; and i say
that if your lips,which i have loved,should touch
another’s,and your dear strong fingers clutch
his heart,as mine in time not far away;
if on another’s face your sweet hair lay
in such silence as i know,or such
great writhing words as,uttering overmuch,
stand helplessly before the spirit at bay;

if this should be,i say if this should be—
you of my heart,send me a little word;
that i may go unto him,and take his hands,
saying,Accept all happiness from me.
Then shall i turn my face,and hear one bird
sing terribly afar in the lost lands
