Bonfire Night T`is time for joy
Dress up now you girl and boy
Bring your rookies bring your smile
Line up now in orderly file.
Bright red flares pushing darkness back
Blinding many in a dance attack
Feet of many and hands held high
Lifting the torches in the sky.
Many costumes many shades
Walking steady in the haze
Sounds of drumming and of horn
Lewes has now been reborn.
Burgers filled with hot tender meat
Colourful people in the street
Drinking laughing singing high
Watching procession drifting by.
Down to the bonfire blazing bright
Push back the chill of winter’s night
A faint sound echo’s as if to start
A beat of music, a beat with heart.
The dark sky is filled with fires passion
The music is power with a fashion
Fireworks of colour light up the sky
Many sparks fly down as if to sigh.
Heads are looking up into the air
Eyes wide open many smiles they share
The music stops the cheering starts
Now they want more it’s in their hearts.
Goodbye my friends for another year
Many years of laughter and of cheers
Thank you for bringing me a night full of love
And a night of passion coming from above.
The proud feeling of awe when watching this sight
Looking forward to it on a winters night
The Lewes bonfire celebrations will never rest
It will be always in my heart and always the best.
