    Here, early spring corresponds to the first month of the year,...

    In the lunar calendar, there are three kinds of spring from the ancient time in Japan. One is early spring(初春), the second is mid-spring(仲春)and the third is late spring(晩春). Here, early spring corresponds to the first month of the year, mid-spring corresponds to the second month and late spring is the third month. These “springs” are counted according to the lunar calendar.

    The above is from a Buddhist magazine.

    Regarding the bold part, can it be written as follows:

    Here, early spring corresponds to the first month of the year, mid-spring to the second month and late spring is the third month.

    Thanks.

    For consistency, the last phrase should be ...and late spring to the third month.
