"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

Living a lie

This real life spy story could be made into a movie! 'The Spy with no Name' has been written about a Dutch spy who lived in London during the Cold War.

The story starts: 'It was a cold Saturday morning in April 1988 when a van full of detectives arrived outside the North London home of Erwin van Haarlem. The self-employed art dealer, 44, lived alone in sleepy Friern Barnet, a smattering of brick homes beside the grim North Circular ring road.'

If you don't want to read the book, the BBC article here gives a good account of van Haarlem's story.
