12th Day of Christmas Haiku: Twelve Drummers Drumming
Twelve drummers drumming
Pa-ra-pa-pam-pam. Peace on
Earth. First snow falls soft.
Happy New Year 2019!
In older versions of the song the twelve drummers drumming were lords a-leaping, bells ringing, fiddlers a-fiddling.
It seems that the first drums were introduced to Europe during the Crusades, brought back from the Holy Land; they were Egyptian and Sumerians.
