The Magical World of Harry Potter
There is a curtain between
the magical world and my world.
Harry steps onto the train station
I feel the curtains open and I’m off to learn magic too.
In my world I play sports
no matter how hard I run
my feet always stay on the ground.
In the magical world
broomsticks fly through the air.
Harry chases the Snitch
his hand outstretched
trying to grasp the tiny golden ball.
When I read the books
I chase Harry
my heart seeking to be filled
But when the time finally comes to close the cover
that curtain closes
and I find myself
