‘My Poem’ by Holly Aged 11

Outbursts of colour
Invade the velvet curtain of the sky,
Happiness, happiness, happiness,
The Tall Ships are here!
Laughter fills the air,
Goes the fireworks,
GASP goes the crowd,
LAUGHTER spreads across Falmouth.
Long masts coming closer, closer, closer,
The Tall Ships are here!
I stare at the glowing moon
In the shadowed cloak of the sky,
The fireworks are coming to an end.
The last firework shoots up into the starlit sky,
Climbing up,
Trying to touch the moon,
Knowing that its life coming to an end,
It explodes all over the treasures of the sky,
Floating down to earth and into the calm sea,
Its life ends here,
The Tall Ships come into the harbour
And everyone goes home to rest
Not knowing about the last fireworks life…
