The Little Rocket

Snug in a box
stored under the stairs
waiting for the moment
I can join all the flares

when the day arrives
we`re brought into the light
to be opened and checked
all ready for the night

the bonfire is burning
such a crackling sound
the sparklers are lit
as people gather around

now that the box is open
feel a little unsteady
for we`re set up in place
as the show is now ready

lots of bangs and colours
as the sky is lit up so bright
one by one we are send up
fireworks on Bonfire night.

It`s that time of year again, when fireworks are ignited and the sky is full of bright flashes of light.
Great bangs and whizzing flares along with laughter can be heard.
