The Prime Minister’s haiku

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

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.

    It could be a slightly archaic use of ‘taken up’ because I’ve heard it used for come into (social) contact with and for to take someone under your wing.
