"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 word that cropped up today:-

To take a nap.

To snooze - doze - grab forty winks - nod off

In other cultures it's a siesta.

    We mentioned also "to kip" @Lynne‌.
    In Dutch "kip" means "chicken" :)

    I woke up ridiculously early too @april‌, but I forced myself to stay in bed and go back to sleep.

    I sometimes take a cat nap too. :)
