The Drum's Unequivocal Pound

by Ximena Patricia Berta

Age Group: Adult

I am from the Other Side,
I've come to bring it down,
From all places North and South,
Of Rising and Setting Sun.
Through the Ages near and far,
From those that may yet come,
Hear the voices high and low,
Of what-all must be undone.
Hear the whispered pleas and hear,
The wailing of that which is gone.
It's way past the longest hour,
Past-due is what must be done.

By all that is Sacred
The Earth and the Fire,
The Sky and the Blessed Raindrop,
By my distant Relations,
The Seed that aspires,
To Night's be-speckled backdrop,
We must return to Olden Ways,
Set free the Spirit to fly,
Sun be-soaked of golden rays,
Back to the Earth when we die.

I am from the Other Side,
I've come to take it back,
Over mountains high and low,
Across the heavens and back,
Through the forests' meadows green,
Quilt of the soil so black.
From the depths of Sacred Springs,
Beckon old voices exact.
Feel the pull from Pole to Pole,
Lodestones of centers intact.
Thunder Spirit echoing,
The Cosmos calls us to act.

Erased in the fire,
Our memories falter
In keeping true to The Way.
The sorrow and the ire,
Inevitable altar
To those enslaved and those slain.
But it's Time that's circled true,
Now we must take back what's due,
By all we love and through and through,
By all that we say and do.

I am from the Other Side,
I've come to bring it down.
Hear the calling from afar,
The Drum's unequivocal pound.
