"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    I think I got about 20% of that! But Sunderland and Newcastle have their own dialect and when they speak, can be almost totally incomprehensible to anyone who's not a local.

    Cockney rhyming slang can be a challenge too @SLB. Did you see the post that I sent to @filauzio a few days ago?

    I'm not sure what you mean. If it was a personal message you sent to him no one else can see it.
