"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

one mistake led to ..

Good day for all,

yesterday I was seeing an intellectual, he always comes with a truth about some title, he talking about canals water.

what did the mistake happen here? how this mistake affect?

he said: " Giovanni Schiaparelli was an Italian astronomer and science historian.
he observed a dense network of linear structures on the surface of Mars which he called "canali" in Italian, meaning "channels" but the term was mistranslated into English as "canals". From the incorrect translation into the term "canals", various assumptions were made about life on Mars; as these assumptions were popularized, the "canals" of Mars became famous, giving rise to waves of hypotheses, speculation, and folklore about the possibility of intelligent life on Mars, the Martians. And now we have The War Of Stars films."
