I'd like to know the difference of three sentences.
1. Spring has come.
2. Spring is come.
3. Spring is here.
Thank you in advance.
Re: is here
"has come" (1.) is the present perfect, and it expresses a continuum of time: starting from some unknown time in the past up until now the present time. "is come" (2.) is ungrammatical. There are too many verbs. The verb "is" takes a participle as its object; e.g., "is coming". Sentence 3. is a linking structure. "is" is a linking verb, and "here", a preposition in form, functions as an adverb.
