Chapter: And Now...

Wow! Great poem! Your imagery is vivid, Harry's thoughts and feelings are tangible and you make it very easy to picture him in that split second before he's mobbed when he realizes that it's all over, that he doesn't have to fight any more and that suddenly his life is at loose ends for the very first time. Thanks for sharing these thoughts with us.

Author's Response: I apologize for not responding to your kind words sooner, having read your review right away and then failing to reply immediately, so that the remembrance of the task slipped away from me. You are correct to say "in that split second", which might have been all of two or three seconds, before the enormity of what had happen had time to penetrate the onlookers' consciousness. Of course Harry had no time to think these thought literally, but there is that overwhelming feeling that embraces all these thoughts, the sense of "now what?"

For variety, I used the meter and rhyme scheme of Omar Khayyam's The Rubaiyat, because those verses each present a single, self-contained thought and lend themselves well to being recited.
Thank you so much for your review. I'm glad you liked it.
