Daf


Drum your fingers gently,
Doum, tekke-te, doum!
First light is rising
And the white thread of dawn
Approaches!
Doum, tekke-te, doum!

Drum the Name of Beauty,
Doum, tekke-te, doum!
The goat skin sings,
And the rosewood blooms,
Crying, ‘Love!’
Doum, tekke-te, doum!

Drum the Name of Glory!
Doum, tekke-doum,
Tekke-te, tekke-te, tekke-doum!
Flames on the ocean,
Land aglow!
Doum, tekke-doum, doum!

Hush as the orb rises,
Tekke, tekke-te, tekke, te!
Lay the daf aside,
Stand and listen,
To the echo on the horizon,
Doum, tekke-te, doum!
