drum-beats of coming clan-kings

& the echoes
come
ah! coming
like a trudge of nature’s drums
of light horns & urgent trumpeters 
setting my home 
aflame with songs!
songs!
to remind the lords 
of their ancient drum-beats -
songs! 
to remind the maidens 
of the moon-light dance!
of new drum-beats
songs! 
of ever-coming millennia clan-kings -
& she
seeing
saw it all
the temple up the crest 
of a thousand mounts –
& she
hearing
heard a full trump
a full blast of mixt songs
with drum-beats from village huts
near her niger’s banks
near her neophyte’s nest -
in came 
her song-throated maidens
like my mbari dancers 
near nri clan
in came 
her retinue 
her century-old pages
drumming
dancing
with the hosts
of the ever-coming millennia clan-kings
