"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

    @dope this can be meant figuratively, where someone is constantly teasing or challenging the other person, as if he is fighting (with a sword - fencing).

    to fence - sword flighting
    prod - poke - in this sense like poke fun at someone
