Lewes Bonfire Night Poem - Lewes Bonfire Night Celebrations

Loudly passes the costumed procession
of the town’s Bonfire Night tradition.
Crowds are drawn by the pageant’s fame
when politics and religion go up in flame.
The cold moves us nearer to the fire
to the Guy Fawkes on the tall pyre.
We cheer at the fall of this black tower
then we see above the first fiery flower.
As the Lewes fireworks break on high
like a peacock’s feathers in the sky.
Or so it seems in one child’s sight
under the spell of Lewes Bonfire Night.
