Summary: After the last spell flashes and the day is won, hope can be found in the subtlest ticking of the clock, the softest note, the tiniest slant of light.
Thus ended the Battle of Hogwarts and began for those left to carry on.
This poem has been nominated for a 2012 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Poetry.
Very Nice! A beautiful piece of poetry that applies directly to the Battle of Hogwarts and the feelings of the survivors...Loved it
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it. It was inspired by the song My Love Is Always There from the Deathly Hallows Part 1 soundtrack. I really recommend tracking it down on YouTube. It's gorgeous. Also, it served as the catalyst of the hymnal feel of this poem.
Thanks for stopping in and for your lovely, kind words. :)
