"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 learned today is a festival where everything is closed, including cinemas, restaurants, places selling alcohol - indeed it seems a very puritanical festival! This is a day when Buddhists pay a visit to the temple and repent their sins. I thought only Catholics did this!

    I think we should have more days when everything is closed! For whatever reason!
