Bonfire Night: Fireworks! Poem by Dominic Windram

Bonfire Night: Fireworks!

Rating: 5.0


On Bonfire Night, a thousand bright lights
Explode in November's autumnal skies:
Moon Shadow, Crackling Glitter, Comet Bomb;
Deadly Dragon, Pearl Shots and Flaming Sun;
Clustering butterflies, Opal Orchids,
Shanghai Surprise and sparklers of chrome and gold.
Wondrous colours of saffron, silver and green;
Scarlet, violet and short blasts of deep blue dreams;
The Tomb of Treasures, The Flower of Spring;
The slither of Shining Serpents that sting
The air - and dazzling white snow lingering.
There are so many dancing, delightful things:
Ruby Red Storms, Summer Fountains, Orange Feasts
And the whirling magic of the Catherine Wheel:
Scenes that briefly extinguish our woes;
Until all that's left, is a haze of smoke.

This is such a vividly described event that one can almost feel the intensity, the colour, the enthusiasm, the magic of the Bonfire Night!
