The Prime Minister's haiku

I didn't realise this, but apparently our Prime Minister writes haiku and posts them on his blog:

http://hermanvanrompuy.typepad.com/haiku/

Rough translation of the most recent:
Als de lente start

verrijzen de crocussen.

Op weg naar Pasen.
At spring's beginning

Crocus flowers return to life.

Easter is coming.
I can't reproduce the full sense of "verrijzen" (which normally means "resurrect") in translation, but you get the idea.
