A display of beautiful, colourful fireworks!
The poem has been set on a day of such fireworks. It creates a lot of colours, sounds like BANG!, THUD! much to our enjoyment; but we must think about our pets who tend to get scared of such noises. It intimidates them, and this poem is a about a dog, that asks his master to let him inside for the night, so that he can guard the master the rest of the days peacefully, from his kennel. This poem is a warning and reminder to all, to remember and safeguard their pets.
The poem is narrated by a dog. This is called personification. Personification is a literary/poetic device used to attribute human characteristics to non-living things or animals.
