A Haiku for French Class

La première fleur,

un lys solitaire flottant

dans l’étang murmure.

————

The first spring blossom,

a lonely lily floating

on the rippling pond.

(Note: I can’t guarantee that the grammar in the French one is spot-on, but I did my best. Also, the English translation isn’t precise because I wanted it to still follow 5-7-5.)
