"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

March to a different drummer

"They definitely 'march to their own drummer,' so even if they SEEM completely normal, they’ll have some strange quirk that will take you by surprise."

to march to a different drummer / to march to a different tune - to behave in a different way or to believe in different things from the people around you

While most of the country supported military action, Santini was marching to a different drummer. (Cambridge Idioms Dictionary)

"The world was a fantastic, marvelous, awesome place, Rose decided."

    If you want to make good music together, you have to tune into the sound of others.
    If you don't do this, your tune will sound different. Then you have two possibilities:
    1. people will like your alternative sound, or
    2. you're considered to be weird.
  • Makes me think of a quote that I like.
    If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away. Henry David Thoreau.

    It's important to know your work environment to avoid marching to a different drummer.
