Folk Festival

Fast food smells waft on the air
Music drifts from every door
People, pushchairs and balloons,
Line narrow streets, jump at musket fire,
And dance to brass band beating drums.
Clogs, bells, sticks clash and clamour,
Tunes of fiddle, pipe and concertina,
Painted faces scare and smile
Reviving ancient festive fun.
