The Cupboard under the stairs

Cupboard Under the Stairs Dom i Meble Harry Potter movie themed ...

If I could take out my wand

and flick it around a little

I would make the cupboard under the stairs talk

I would want to hear it whistle.

Would it complain about its damp walls

and how, instead, it needs to made of glass

or would it gossip about the “gas meter” man

how, each time, he fills the room with his own smelly gas?

Would it chatter about the time

Harry Potter was spending his young days

with an ordinary cupboard

with a room full of nothing but dirt and haze?

Would it proudly talk about the time

it never let the Dursleys in

using its power of untidiness and bad smell

and inviting in spiders, some fat and some thin?

Would it quietly mourn over the past years

of wondrous wizards and witches

would it miss its best friend, Harry

who left to become great and rich?

I’m sure of one thing, though:

the cupboard under the stairs

would be proud to be part of

such a magical era full of smiles, tears and prayers.

Hi! I am a 13-year-old currently studying in the Netherlands. For 5 years, I was studying in London and moved to India for some time in July 2019. First of all, I love playing the western flute and have been playing for quite a few years now. Playing and also, listening to music is definitely my passion. Some sports I enjoy playing are badminton, netball, swimming, football, cricket (these are the top 5!). Ok, so letโ€™s talk about poetry. I wrote my first poem in a primary school in England and this inspired me to start writing poems on WordPress. Some of my recent poems are about global issues such as climate change, depression, bullying etc. Writing poetry is another passion of mineโ€ฆso, check out my poems on WordPress. I donโ€™t know what else I could say here so, hope you love my poemsโ€ฆ..happy reading!!

  1. This is very creative!!!
    Of all the magical things in Harry Potter you chose his dreary cupboard which was the sole place in that house that belonged to Harry until he discovered his true identity!
    Lovely!
