Memories Of Fire
Making toast on a fire,with a toasting fork,
My mum lighting a coal fire,waiting for a spark.
Warming our legs,against the back of a fire.
Using the fire guard,as a clothes dryer.
The smell of a bonfire on a cold and damp November day.
Blowing out birthday candles,making a wish along the way.
Pretend firemen helmets,Fireman Sam books and fire engine toys,
All loved and played with by my three little boys.
Little boys rubbing sticks together,numerous times,
Magnifying glass traps on the patio,all to produce fire!
Ne-Nah,Ne-Nah,Ne-Nah,the nursery children still cry,
Whenever they hear a fire engine hurtle by.
These thoughts of fire have danced around my head,
Vivid fiery memories - yellow,orange and red.
