Firework Night - A Poem by Enid Blyton

Firework Night - A Poem by Enid Blyton | Poetry | Scoop.it

BANG!

What's that?

Bang-Bang!

Oh, Hark, The guns are shooting in the dark!

Little guns and big ones too,

Bang–bang-bang!

What shall I do?

Mistress, Master, hear me yelp,

I'm out-of-doors, I want your help.

Let me in-oh, LET ME IN

Before those fireworks begin
