Soave Sia Il Vento

Adrian Matejka

About This Poem


"For about a year I've been trying and mostly failing in profound ways to write about my daughter. Her sense of wonder and openness defies what I know how to do in a poem right now. So I've been writing these ten-line, music-inspired lyrics in an effort to change my poetic perspective while still catching some of the smaller moments of her joy."
—Adrian Matejka
