Drummer Girl

A poem inspired by my daughter playing Buddy Holly by Weezer. She listened to the song for the first time and played along.

Rhythmic pounding
Beats in time
Alternating sticks
She pounds out the beat
Sticks in hand
1,2,3,4 counts
A drummer’s soul
Dwells inside
Her heart beats the counts
Of that drummer’s beat
Sounds emerge
Da da da
Rolling drum sticks released
