The Poems of Spring consist of eight short pieces altogether, written in 1981 when the composer was a third year student at the University of Canterbury. He gave the first performance of the work at the University late in that year. These pieces attempt to contrast the beauty of a Christchurch spring with the pain of a broken relationship. All this is played out against the backdrop of the 1981 Springbok ruby tour which cause so much turmoil in New Zealand at that time.
