Bonfire Night

Bonfire Night

Sparks shooting stars
up to the night sky
from the dried,
crackling wood
A child stares
into the flames
mesmerized
where he stood
 
This night
of fireworks and fire 
Bonfires burning
a Guy Fawkes effigy
Spare a penny
for the Guy mister?
Remember, remember 
the fifth of November
is the age-old elegy
