    God's Drum

    By Hartley Burr Alexander
    (from "Gospel of the Redman"==Ernest Thomas Seton)

    The circle of the Earth is the head of a great drum;
    With the day, it moves upward - booming;
    With the night, it moves downward - booming;
    The day and night are it's song.

    I am very small, as I dance upon the drum-head;
    I am like a particle of dust, as I dance upon the drum-head;
    Above me in the sky is the shining ball of the drum stick.

    I dance upward with the day;
    I dance downward with the night;
    Some day I shall dance afar into space like a particle of dust.

    Who is the Drummer who beats upon the earth-drum?
    Who is the Drummer who makes me to dance his song?
