The Poet PM

The recently installed Prime Minister of the Belgians, Herman Van Rompuy is a blogger. Amongst the entries on his site are his original haiku (translations below from the WSJ):

When a friend is dead
You above all miss his voice
But you still hear him

As the last leaf falls
Naked branches show themselves
Winter shows itself

Hair blows in the wind
After years there is still wind
Sadly no more hair.
