"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

Well, I am reading her essay about Aristotle's concept of psyche and I don't agree with her views on Descartes's alleged solipsism. But she was courageous. :)

A quote about Descartes: "Contrast the picture fostered by the Cartesian mens. We are locked into our
solipsistic consciousness; bothered about how to establish that there is anything
outside it, let alone whether there are other minds."
