A Poem for November 5th (Bonfire Night)

In honour of bonfire or Guy Fawkes Night, I am reproducing below my poem “Catherine Wheel”, which can be found in “The Selected Poems of K Morris”:

Catherine Wheel
Sometimes I feel
Like a Catherine wheel;
My words as sparks,
Lighting the dark.
But who in December
The fifth of November?

“The Selected Poems of K Morris” is available as a Kindle download or in paperback from Amazon, https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07WW8WXPP/ and https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07WW8WXPP/.

    Because of me lifelong interest in both the Catholic Church’s history, and John Lennon, I’ve always known about the 5th of November, but I must have plum forgotten somehow, unfortunately, about the Catherine Wheel.

    I remember Catherine Wheels, too, but nit why they are so called. Who was Catherine, and why did she give her name to this firework?
    Anyway, I enjoyed your poem.
