"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."

    Can or should we interpret the question in a different way? My answer:

    "Cancan" or "Can-can".

    By the way @Lynne , the question suggests the existence of only one correct answer. That is why I've tried to find that unique answer. Unless it's a trick question. :D

    Well done @Sousa. Nice try everyone else, but although you were correct in principle it wasn't that easy. ;)

    Maybe I should have added, "that isn't a 3-letter-word". ;)

    There are other words out there. So, no more 3-letter-words - can you think of any more?

    Yesterday during my research I saw at least two possible words that begins and ends with the same 3 letters, but I am an honest guy and I prefer not to write them. In spite of my research I arrived alone to 'cancan'! :)
