"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

    According to the Cambridge dictionnary

    relate to something is a phrasal verb that means to understand a situation or someone's feelings because you have experienced a similar situation or similar feelings.
    --> Why doesn't she want to go on holiday? I can't relate to that.
    --> I can relate to your problems. I had difficulty finding somewhere to live when I first moved here.

    related is an adjective meaning either connected or being part of the same family.
    --> Experts believe that the large number of cancer cases in the area are directly related to the new nuclear power station.
    --> Jim and I are related by marriage.
    It befits a man to be merry and glad
    Until the day of his death.
