Hark! What is this upon my ear?

A drum, a drum
Who doth come?

On my porch I sit and listen
Listen to the night sounds, the drum interrupts

A drum, a drum
Who doth come?

The beaten skin reaches through the air
Stretches across the firmament
Calling my name, I stand to listen

A drum, a drum
Who doth come?

Harken to me Drummer!
Why do ye approach?
What tidings do you bring?
What warning from thy throat?

A drum, a drum
Who doth come?

Answer the drum, O my Soul
Listen to its call
Heed its warning, chase its beat
Follow it with eager feet
Hear the drum, ignore all else, quiet all stirrings in thy breast

A drum, a drum
Who doth come?

Go, on the Wind, O my Spirit
After the haunting beat, fly
Stray not from this wave of sound
Let not a rythm pass you by
Walk in step with the Drummer
Stay forever by His side, ever and ever, forever mystified

A drum, a drum
I doth come

I really liked this. Sorry I didn't comment before. I had little time on the computer, so I just read it, but didn't get a chance to tell you how good this is. I really liked it. It reminded me of The Little Drummer Boy and now I can't wait for the winter season!...I'm rambling...

Lisa Kumar (lisa_kumar) | 77 comments Very nice! I have one question, though. Was 'waring' in the line "Heed its waring, chase its beat" supposed to be "warning" or "warring"?
