Your Poem BONFIRE NIGHT ROCKETS and fountains light up the sky As on top of the fire they put the Guy The flames flare up as sparks start to land And the rockets are stood in a bucket of sand Rip-raps and bangers are heard everywhere As rockets go screaming into the air The smoke and the smell of wood burning bright All add to the magic of bonfire night Hot dogs and potatoes cooked in their jackets As fireworks go off making a racket Hot soup and burgers to keep out the cold As we celebrate a ritual ever so old Children hold sparklers tight in their hands As pin wheels turn with all coloured bands We stand round the fire with faces aglow And watch as the flames burn down low Fireworks are magic like stars in the sky Another night ends as we say goodbye by Freda Renton, address supplied
