It echoes through the forest.
It makes the sound of sweet songs
It communicates with people.
It makes people dance.
To warn people that rain is coming
To welcome people to a celebration
To scare animals away from the people near the drum
To help people find their way out of the forest
The Rain Forest
A forest Animal
The rainforest will soon become quiet again
The drums will no longer echo
Animals will scatter and run away.
Men, Women, and children will dance
The location of the drum is clearly described
Someone calls out just like the drum does
The exact sound of the drum is explained
Some words are repeated throughout the poem
