Halloween beckons both young and old out:
gathering up flammable things to burn –
a bonfire build, what craic to be about!
Old mattresses, tyres, posts- all took a turn,
for risks and worries we had no concern!
The pile grew fatter, taller: we aspired
to build a fire mem’ries of awe would earn.
Halloween night brought a bonfire inspired –
easily viewed ‘cross the valley hereabout;
smouldering for days til the greeshay died out
