CHINESE NEW YEAR COLOURS FLY
by Divya Verma 4L
Up in the sky, the moon, the clouds,
We were there, excited, cheering out loud.
It was exhilarating that day.
For the first time in my life, a fireworks display!
My family, my friends were really looking
forward to the show, we had made the booking.
Being a small child, I would be crushed in the crowd,
But I knew the show would be great, I had no doubt.
The bangs and booms that started so suddenly
remained in my ear, fortunately.
I saw a giant flower in the sky,
As the colours splendid started to fly.
Everyone got loud. I looked at them
A spark on the faces of women and men
Our eyes were zooming, looking for what was to see,
That was fun! We cried with glee.
They were marvelous, the fireworks were lit,
The ooh’s and aah’s I heard, I enjoyed quite a bit
And the sky was full! We had so much fun!
But wait, the display had only begun!
With a glass of champagne in hand,
we screamed together forming a new band.
I was dancing and moving to the sound,
filled with joy as I looked all around
I felt really sad when everything ended,
But this memory will never be amended.
That was my most favourite day -
Fireworks at Chinese New Year’s - in ever way!
