Choice by Maxi
Choice is a tug of war between good and evil
Will it work out or will it not?
Do I stick with what I’ve got?
Do I explore and change my world?
Do I change the world for everyone?
Do we interpret everything differently?
Do I like the world today?
Do I belong here?
Harry Potter by Sophie
My favourite books are about Harry Potter
That Lord Voldemort is a real rotter!
Playing Quidditch sounds so much fun
Flying on a broomstick so you don’t have to run
Hermione Grainger is so, so clever
She was the first student to levitate a feather
I wish I could receive an owl with my post
Whilst sitting in the Great Hall eating my toast
I’ll end this poem with one final plea
Send my invitation to Hogwarts and I’ll be full of glee
