All About Harry Haikus

His eyes are green and
filled with excitement, his hair
black, unkempt . . . Harry.

His toad has gone missing. He
is easy to scare

Bolt scar on his face
Fast as lightning catch the Snitch

Enchants and excites readers
and makes them believe

Clutching the feathered being

The disarming charm

A world beyond mine
Magic, wizards, Quidditch rule
Harry Potter lives

he likes to play tricks at school
he doesn't like school

A swift muttering
An incantation is cast
Fireworks erupt

Every flavor; pepper, salt

so much protection, yet so much
pain at the same time

Where you fly on flying brooms.
Catch the Snitch, you win!

Wonderment and mystery,
It will never end!

Harry is the best.
I admire everything
he does in the books

Kate, 11

Soar, fly, zoom in the
night sky Buckbeak soars past stars
above the night sky

from deep under the
table dragged no time to scream
it was only Ron

Kawaja, 11

eyes dark as blackboard
wish he were mine; he's divine
hero who conquered


no curse will ever
be more unconditional
than their friendship was

Mary, 14
