Guy Fawkes Day According to a kid

Updated on February 9, 2010

Just so you know...

Guy Fawkes Day/Night, is a British Holiday, usually accompanied by fireworks and bonfire night. It is celebrated on 5th November in celebration of the failed attempt by the Catholic conspirators, to destroy the House of Parliament.

Guy Fawkes was on the the conspirators.

This is a poem written by my little brother.

I was very, very surprised by it. It's pretty good I think .

It was even promoted from his book to the wall, where all the good stuff goes. He was very impressed with that!

During the Christmas fair I spotted it on the wall and felt proud and a little smug. My sister and I had a secret cool High fiving session.

He's eight and an avid lover of reading; the poem was part of a school assignment.

It was removed for the next batch of poetry based on another holiday, so I decided to share it with you.

Whizz! Fizz! Wallop! Bang!

There go the Catherine Wheels

Gold, red, green

Everywhere exploding.

Sparklers sizzling, owls hooting

"Cool!" said a kid

Watching fizzing fireworks banging in the air

Fizz, fireworks racing up in the night sky.

Fizz, wallop, bang, crash,cling, rumble

We celebrate Guy Fawkes for his plan

But he go caught.

So we thought of Bonfire Night

A great night for kids

Everywhere kids are really happy

To have bonfire night.

People see and hear the fireworks

Getting ready for sleeping time

So hooray, hooray for bonfire day!

Guy Fawkes himself.
Guy Fawkes himself.

      Thanks everyone. **blushing** he is pretty good. He was very embarrassed when I told him, I put it on here.

      @MOW he says thank you very much, but I'll be writing in my spare time or for school. I want to be a Michelin star chef with my own restaurant :D

      @fits and bonny I will do my best to encourage him and I too miss backyard fireworks- they were fun!
