Bonfire Day

Icy wind push grey clouds

As long as the rain holds tonight

Theres a bonfire waiting

a guy on the top

just hoping the weather is dry

the roads are closed

people walk to the town

excitement in their voices

there’s a carnival atmosphere

Smiles, laughter anticipation builds

There is a calmness around

no cars on the roads

people line the streets

Bands playing in the distance

Children jump up and down in the cold

We wait, just wait

for the evening to start.
