It is something that I can't describe
I turn my head
All of the lights consume me
They dance in their beautiful costumes
Filling the night sky
Small children stare with wonder and excitement
Their little fingers point to one light
While they describe every detail of its journey
The sparks come down to earth
They invite you to join them
When you rise up
They show off their beauty and grace
Taking you to far off places
Where only happiness lives
When they display their grand finally
Millions of people cheer
Roaring like the one of a jungle cat
While you dancing lights take a bow
And walk off stage

My cousin and I went to go watch fireworks for Christmas.It was my first time ever seeing a fireworks show. They were all really pretty. Every time you heard a pop it was a new display which was really cool. The were so great that i felt like writing about it.

I liked it. The wording was good and every aspect played into its flow.

Oh wow! This is wonderful, I love the image it creates. You can just picture the children all excited pointing and shouting in their excitement of the bright lights you describe.
