Well, *'aSralya'nganpu'* will understand *qImroq bIr* and *qImroq tuj* as
"winter" and "summer" just fine, they'll just associate them with different
months of the year.

As for spring and autumn, we don't have specific terms yet. You could
try *qImroq
nIl/nIlHa' *"verdant/unverdant season". Or consider it an opportunity to
exercise your poetic license and come up with some nice metaphor.
