Sings

Let me hear the beat
of the bodhran like my heart,
nightly calls to me,
from my Celtic roots, it speaks.
It is singing me homeward.

Footnote:

**for those that do not know the bodhran ( pronounced baw – rawn) is an Irish/ Celtic drum which is played with a tipper (beater/ stick) in one hand that you strike the drum in up and down movements with. Then your other hand is placed inside the drum and moved about to make the various notes like base, treble etc.**
