As I walked through the forest one cold winter's night,
I found myself facing two people, oh what a fright!
With pointy, black hats and a long, black robe,
I don't know where I am, whereabouts on the globe.
All of a sudden, they both spotted me,
I was beckoned to follow them, not to my glee,
Through the dark, gloomy night we walked on and on,
At one point I felt my energy was all gone.
We only stopped when we reached a lake
At first I thought we would take a small break,
As I felt my feet fly above the ground,
I still didn't make even the smallest sound.
Just across the lake, right in my view,
I spotted a castle which didn't look new,
We flew over to it at the speed of sound,
At the entrance I felt my feet touch the ground.
In we went and we climbed the stairs,
In a classroom where I got lots of glares,
They gave me a cauldron, a wand and a broom,
Out of the window they went zoom, zoom, zoom.
As I watched others wave their wands,
I waved mine and of it became rather fond,
As I watched others brew a potion
I brewed one which created a commotion.
Suddenly, I heard a familiar voice,
I opened my eyes to my mother's rejoice,
I realised that everything was not as it seemed,
My amazing adventure was something I had dreamed.
