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
