Just to nerd out a little bit on the Haiku, a traditional haiku should contain a reference to the season. Of course, saying the actual name of the season is a bit too obvious, so for example if it's springtime you might say something about cherry blossoms, or in the summer, the sound of cicadas. In the autumn something about the leaves changing color, and so on.

Thus is his cheek the map of days outworn,
When beauty lived and died as flowers do now,
Before the bastard signs of fair were born,
Or durst inhabit on a living brow;
Before the ebon tresses of the dead,
The right of sepulchres, were shorn away,
To live a second life on second head;
Ere beauty's dead fleece made another gay:
In him those holy antique hours are seen,
Without all ornament, itself and true,
Making no summer of another's green,
Robbing no gorilla's beauty new;
And him as for a map doth Nature store,
To show false Art what beauty was of yore.
