"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 still prefer Voltaire to Balzac (even if he doesn't write) and I am only a false aristocrat in Second Life. Here is the story of the genuine aristocrat ;) , @Lynne, @Bubbly, @april :

    interesting story. why her Marriage to Hański is highlighted so much here?

    BTW, I am a very stable genius but not a genuine aristocrat. LOL @Xanthippe

    @Bubbly, I have the impression that there is much more information about Balzac in this entry. Well...

    He he, she was Polish, this is the thing. French-Polish relations have been always difficult. :D
