Chapter: The Hourglasses

This is great! I love how the hourglasses see themselves as helping people to grow and prove their House the best. I especially like how there's no gloating after the students' House wins and they have to go back and keep working for the honor. (Maybe that's the Slytherins problem, they gloat too much instead of working.) I really liked this.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for writing a review. I think there are enough ideas in this poem that everyone can pick his favorite. I particularly like the part that reminds us there's a certain amount of luck in how things turn out, and that after bad times, things can get better.

Chapter: The Hourglasses

Wow! Very nice. I love the advice at the end. One shouldn't focus on prizes, because doing good is its own reward. I think the world in general needs to hear this advice daily. :) Thank you for a lesson learned, Vicky.

Author's Response: Oh thank you for writing a review. (Poetry doesn't get a lot of reviews.) I think that the lesson is one that we appreciate more in adulthood than we did in childhood, when we still responded very positively to rewards and bribes ("If you are good, I will read you a story.")
