HAPPY NEW YEAR – 2018

Goose Fair

A convoy of pleasure and excitement

That descends on the city at night

Carrying fantastic rides of joy

Of exhilarating experience and delight

Piece by piece are assembled

Like a jigsaw they all fit together

Working to be ready on time

Working through all kinds of weather

The skyline of Nottingham changes

A jungle of lights and steel

Sideshows and rides

Not forgetting the Big Wheel

Then the opening day arrives

A ritual that is part of the fair

Then the bell will be rung

And a speech from the Lord Mayor

The noise from the loud speakers

The aroma from cooking meals

Candyfloss, hot peas and balloons

Anticipation, excitement and squeals

A night of breathtaking beauty

A kaleidoscope of dazzling display

Everyone will enjoy the experience

Until it’s dismantled and taken away.

BANK HOLIDAY

Bank holiday has come

We’re off to seaside

To have some fun,

 Let’s get sand in our shoes

Bucket and spades

Pick up the lemonade

 Sand castles are made,

The seafront is paved with

Fish and chips and candy floss,

Let’s spend our money

 in the penny slots,

Paddling pools and donkey rides

Bank holiday has come

 We had some holiday fun,

So on the bus and homeward bound

How many seashells have we found?

Goose fair poems

goosefair-goose

 

As soft as clouds, as pink as a rose, the smell of the candy floss won’t leave your nose.

It’s like a sky scraper standing proud and tall, though when I am in it I feel very small.

Whizzing as fast as the speed of light, I get a headache as I watch the sight.  (Written by Megan King)

 

Rides spinning round and round, getting closer to the ground.

Sounding like volcanoes erupting. (Written by Adrian Wagstaffe )

 

The bright lights hit her head with a bang!

She wandered over to the food van.

Rides whizzing past.

As she queues up for one rather fast.  (Written by Isobel Pye)

 

The candy floss is oh so nice, you will have to eat it twice! ( Written by Holli-Ann Beer)

EVEN SCHOOL KIDS ARE GETTING THE POETRY BUG

SO COME TO NOTTINGHAM AND HAVE SOME FUN AT THE NOTTINGHAM GOOSE FAIR

Mystique and magical fun

Wow it is Goose Fair

Where I have arrived

A magical land

Full of glistening jewels,

That stands before my eyes

Every one lit up like

Diamonds in a crown

Like a rainbow in the sky,

The beauty is all around

Like a magnetic field,

It beckons me

To the  mystique of the big wheel,

I follow the crystals

One by one,

Every one a different colour

Enticing me to discover,

Each and every ride

Is mystique and magical fun

By Gillian Sims

Is it the end ?

The clock strikes twelve the end has come

The beer, the lager, and the whisky has gone

But it is not the end

But a new beginning

The start of a brand new year

For everyone,

2012 and the world’s having fun

A year for all new things to be done

A new job, to earn a few bob,

New seeds to sow, then see them grow

Is something we did a year ago

So happy new year to everyone

Because a new year just begun

Thomas Sims
