On Precious Ears

Exploding stars light up the night
Wheels tumble, spin whilst standing still
Winter’s breath from children’s mouths erupts
Flame dances without effort through the sky
Little eyes gaze up in total wonder
Figurines dance playfully on high
Effigies rise high above the skyline
Torch touches fuel bursting into flames
Explosions rock the building quenching sound
Hammer blow that falls on canine ears
As twinkling fireflies dance in the shadows
Seeking refuge she wanders empty rooms
Popping pyrotechnics through the night
Flashes up above attract crowds large and small
Winter’s night is warmed by burning candles
My precious fears this one night most of all
