Kettledrum roll please…

It begins with a soft tap
almost a twitch
ever so slowly
the percussion picks up
lightly rolling 
into a steady beat…  …  …  …  …

until A LOUD THUMP
sounds and resounds
joined by the hiss and tingle
of a tambourine oscillating
and announcing the crescendo 
kettledrum roll —

HEAT RISING !!!
as the old house pipes
clamor ’til horse
and lazily collapse
into the sound 
of a warm pillow.
