Chapter: Memento Mori

I was hooked on from the start by the title, but also the opening lines set up a kind of intrigue, so I wasn’t entirely sure what was happening. The repetition of ‘Memento Mori’ was particularly effective because just as I was getting into the whispers and quiet of the poem, and then you hit us with:

Screamed so loudly,

Like thunder, like lighting;

Like rage,

Released into the black night,

It suddenly filled the poem with so much power.

Then by repeating ‘remember’ you add another dimension to the poem because it evoked feelings of sorrow and pity for the poems recipient. Before I re read the summary I thought that this was about Snape remembering Lily, but the fact that it’s Voldemort makes much more sense, and it doesn’t matter because it speaks very well of love, loss and death which are themes applicable to both. (Lost boys, as Harry called them.)

I enjoyed reading this very much. Well done. ~Carole~
