Independence Day

“There was one bursting now, a delicate constellation of many-colored stars which drifted down and lingered in the still air… The final rocket went up, a really large one, a piece of reckless extravagance. Its sibilant uprush was impressive, dragonlike; it soared twice as high as any they had had before… The sparks from the rocket came pouring down the sky in a slow golden cascade, vanishing one by one into a lake of darkness.” ~ Jan Struther
