Harry had such amazing fun
playing with snitch and ton
flying about close to the sun
tried hard and often won

The thought to play arose
events would keep us on our toes
no time to dream or dose
always watching for blows or foes

Harry was kept on the run
opposition trying to stun
balls zooming by like shots from a gun
after each game he was done

Seen how fast it all flows
constantly dodging harsh blows
scarce time to blow ones nose
catching that snitch is the close

Reflects life and our woes
seldom stopping to smell a rose
constantly watching how it all goes
trying to avoid our own lows

Rules of each game impose
next event one never knows
each action karmically sews
weeds and seeds that need no hose

Life and quiditch are equally unreal
tossed about by how we feel
avoiding that with which we should deal
distractions will only steal!

  1. WOAHHHH!!! I LOVE THIS . The inner witch can’t stop from reading this over and over again . Oh and I also made my siblings read it , they loved it too. Perhaps I’ll ask to get this into our curriculum or maybe we can chant this for encouragement before the game. I’m in the team !!

  3. Namaste Calm Kate ๐Ÿ™‚

    A fun little rhyme, aesthetically pleasing, freely flowing with oblique humour (and wit) and delivering an essential message: it peps me up nicely at 4a.m on a Monday morning to brave the unknown perils of this game we call life.

    But how much easier living would be if not for the Whomping Willow Trees. If only we all owned Firebolt broomsticks ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Namaste ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I love this poem, Kate! And how you related Harry and his games to our lives!
    (((HUGS))) ๐Ÿ™‚
    J.K. Rowling said, ‘Wit beyond measure is man’s greatest treasure.’ ๐Ÿ™‚
    Carolyn said, ‘My Friend Kate, you are witty, wise, wonderful and great!’ ๐Ÿ™‚
