An Ode to Harry Potter

In Poetry on October 10, 2014 at 11:30 pm

It took only seven books
To change the world’s looks
On the enchanting word magic
A boy whose story in tragic
Is the one portrayed
Whose parents were betrayed
By their dearest friend

With a lightning scar
He has travelled far
Into the children’s minds
More than anyone’s finds

Not to mention Hermione granger
Who saved Harry from every danger
Her bossiness and wits
Were just loved by the kids

Harry’s other sidekick, Ron weasly
Brother of Ginny weasly
Hermione Granger’s husband
And brother-in-law of his own friend

Harry potter’s other friends like Neville longbottom
Seamus, dean and Cedric have reached the heart’s bottom
The jokers of Hogwarts
From Fred and George onwards
Have made the world a beautiful place
With people of Harry potter craze.

Thestrals, hippogriffs , dragons and spiders
Have made all readers it’s riders ,
In each one’s imagination
All thanks to Rowling’s creation

Spells, charms and potions
Have changed everybody’s notions
Elfs,goblins ,owls and dementors
Act as a child’s mentors
On values in a society.

And then there are the Hogwarts’s teachers,
Which also includes some cheaters,
Dumbledore, Minerva, Snape and umbridge,
Can give more information than in Cambridge,
On witchcraft and wizardry.

Quidditch, a magical game,
In which Harry’s got fame
Is fun to see
As tickets are free.

Prongs ,padfoot, moony and wormtail
Whose stories are quite a tale
Are an example of good friendship.

The greatest evil wizard ever born
Is Lord Voldemort
The death eaters ,his followers
Are said to be even worse
Includes Harry’s school rival Draco Malfoy.

From Bellatrix to Fenrir Greyback
Love is what they lack
Can the chosen one bring it back?
Or will he become one in their sack ?

All these stories
Have entertained children more than fairies
But it all ends one day
And it unacceptable that there is no other way
All the children in the world sing in choir
Au revoir! Au revoir! Au revoir!
