Från hägg till syren;
plommon, körsbär, päron, slån
studier i vitt

All the shades
of plum, bird-cherry, pear, sloe:
white-blossom May

In Sweden we often speak about the time "mellan hägg och syren" as the finest of the year. This is when the bird-cherry begins in mid-May (where I live) and then the lilacs open, a few weeks later.

This Swedish haiku has been published in our journal Haiku, in 2002. My English version, which is very free, was published on Denis Garrison's site in a cycle for the twelve months of the year from around the world.

слива, черешня, груша и тёрн:
все оттенки
белого в цветах мая
