A bit of fun

Every year, or at least for the past few years, I take part in the Chamber of Secrets Holiday Calendar. Last year I shared the little story I did with Rose. This year I came up with something entirely different. I was having a hard time getting the characters to behave and let me write a simple Christmas story. So I wrote a poem instead. I don't rhyme, and I typically don't write poetry. But it's in fun. So here is my entry to this year's Holiday Calendar. So for all Harry Potter fans....

It’s that time of the year
When the Hogwarts Holiday Calendar brings much cheer.
I sharpened up my quill
And wondered what I’d do to fit the bill.

I tried to write
Even stayed up late at night!
But, alas to my dismay
There was nothing for me to say.

James and Lily didn’t make a peep.
The Trio and Ginny stayed asleep
Not a word from Scoripus or Rose.
Upon the twins I could not impose.

Busy with work and books,
I couldn’t even spare time to cook!
The deadline approached way too fast
An idea came to mind – at last!

Instead of a story I hold so dear,
I’ll write a poem full of holiday cheer.
Only as the words began to flow,
Did I discover it was full of woe.

I typically can’t rhyme
But I will just this time.
So that I can write my holiday wish
And pray that it sounds sweet-ish.

So with that thought,
I’ll give it a shot -
Merry Christmas to all
And may your holidays be a ball!


  1. Love it Dawn!!! This is a cute idea.

    1. Thanks! I had fun writing it. It took all of about 10 minutes that day once I got going on it.
