Well I'm very glad she didn't do it, I really like the ending 'Longer she'd wait to hear angels sing' thats a really powerful line.
It's wonderful, Emily_the_Poet! Very interesting take on things, as I've never thought of Hermione in this kind of context. But this is a very moving sonnet and I think the words are beautiful and your meter is perfect. *Alas, is no poetry expert*
I like that you used a potion to signify Death because it's such an interesting metaphor. And really, your choice of words is fantastic. Beautific. Lovely way to earn House Points, haha. Great job!
