Hi Christy. This is Vicki of Slytherin House, and I was sufficiently intrigued by your Poem Summary to read your poem. It is unique in that nobody else addresses the interface between the Harry Potter fictional books and the real world; we just speak and act as if we believe that the story is true.

Like you, we imagine ourselves approaching the castle, walking inside, seeing all the things that J. K. Rowling describes, thinking how we would function in a place like that, what kind of life it would be. I have sometimes wondered what it would be like to visit a Harry Potter theme park; would it seem real, as if I actually were at Hogwarts, or would the plastic underpinnings peek through, and the walls prove to be no more than painted styrofoam? Perhaps it depends, as you say , on if you have magic within you.

The last four lines of your poem are thought-provoking; how can these moments come to life as we create magic within ourselves? In fact, how do we create magic within ourselves? And would the magic of wands and spells actually improve our lives over what we have now? Or are we talking about some other sort of magic that does not and never did requires wands?

I enjoyed your poem. You describe yourself in your bio as a staunch fan of Harry Potter, so I hope we will see more of your works here.

Nice! I liked the walk through the life of a person living at Hogwarts. I especially found the last stsa to be very profound. Great!
