THE POW-WOW DRUM

29 Feb 2012

This week we have been learning about 'The pow-wow drum' by David Campbell.  This poem is about a Native American tribal gathering.

  We had to divide into groups to practise and perform the poem.  We were allowed to use expression, actions and make props to enhance our performances. 

After each performance we made comments about the quality of the performance eg.  The group worked well together and they used expression, The actions were well thought through, Next time they can speak with clear voices, The rhythm in the poem was clearly evident in the performance. 

Have a look at our budding future Oscar winners!


The Pow-wow Drum

Long black braids and silken shawls



Moving side by side where the eagle calls
Answering the beat of the pow-wow drum
we come again, to dance again
Hey a, hey a, hey a, hey a, hey!
 Hey a, hey a, hey a, hey a, hey!






Leave the dusty cities far behind



Meet our brothers of the country with one mind



 
Travelling from the east, north, south and west 
we come again, to dance again

Hey a, hey a, hey a, hey a, hey!
 Hey a, hey a, hey a, hey a, hey!







Watching close the feet of lightning fly




 Fancy dancers free underneath the sky
Joining the circle moving round and round
we come again, to dance again
Hey a, hey a, hey a, hey a, hey!
 Hey a, hey a, hey a, hey a, hey!





Woman shining like the morning sun




Children making rainbows as they laugh and run


 

The old and young meeting like
they did long ago




We come again to dance again

Hey a, hey a, hey a, hey a, hey!
 Hey a, hey a, hey a, hey a, hey!



David Campbell
