a musical instrument that you hit with sticks or with your hands; a big round sth look like drum
"he could hear the drums before he heard the fifes"
"Rain drummed against the windshield"
"The drums beat all night"
"I had to bone up on my Latin verbs before the final exam"
Our hearts.., like muffled drums, are beating Funeral marches to the grave.
Such percussion instruments as steel drums and hollow-log drums.
Heart..take thy rest..; For thou shalt drum no more.
Rain..still drummed through the leaves.
