The Primary School Festival Bonfire

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Primary school children gathered and sang under our big tree and then followed the lantern spiral parade to light the bonfire together. It is the role of the Class 7 children to use their flaming torches to light the bonfire. In preparation for the lighting of the fire, they recite this verse:

“Fire am I!

With crackling roaring flame I come.

Can ye not hear me?

“Fire am I!

With brilliant, blinding flame I come.

Can ye not see me?

Fire am I!

With searing, scorching flame I come.

Can ye not feel me?

Fire am I!

With leaping tongues of flame I come.

Are ye not consumed by me?

Fire am I!

With all the power of flame I come.

Can ye not quench me?

Fire am I!

Are ye not changed by me?”
