'Be Careful with Candles' Poem

'Be Careful with Candles' by Matthew


It was a few days until Christmas

A long time since a school class

I looked outside at the snow

Then I turned to the TV for my favourite show

Suddenly, then a small crash sound was heard

I went to look as I passed the paper bird

I went into the hallway to see

The candle was broken, that will cost a fee

It was still burning, so I put it out

If I had touched the flame I would shout

If the candle had started a fire

It would have caused dangerous problems

It would have been dire!
