There once was a wizard, Lord Voldemort,
Who told people to join the Dark Side, they ought.
He killed everyone,
Until a boy aged one,
Put an end to the reign of Lord Voldemort.

This boy went to live with his aunt
And uncle, who said "But he can't
Be a wizard! Absurd,
If the neighbours heard,
You aren't a wizard, you aren't!"

He lived with them for ten years,
Far away from his natural peers,
'Till one day he found out,
The secret was out
And it confirmed his family's worst fears.

To Hogwarts school he went,
Where his happiest days were spent.
Different spells they learnt
And potions they burnt
And he found out what friendship meant.

He and his friends had adventures,
Which lead to them getting detentions.
They agreed to stop prying,
Getting into trouble and spying, Until something tested their good intentions.

Through a trapdoor they descended one night,
A Dark Wizard they were prepared to fight,
They broke the different spells
As legend now tells
Until the enemy was at last in sight.

In the last chamber he found the stone,
Unfortunately he wasn't alone,
Quirrel and Voldemort were there,
An unpleasant pair,
Who tried to kill him and take the stone.

Dumbledore arrived in time to save him,
And agreed it was really quite brave of him,
The whole school was amazed,
He and his friends were praised
Ffor saving the wizarding world from HIM.

And sadly our story now ends,
Harry Potter goes home with his friends,
His family are horrible,
Simply intolerable,
We'll see Harry again when summer ends!
