The Sorting Hat

We had a Sorting Hat at the Harry Potter workshop Saturday and I wrote down what it whispered in my ear when I put it on. Try to remember what you heard and post in the comments below. We’ll be doing another Potter Poetry Workshop in the autumn.

This one needs focus–
mind always flying
like a magpie
to the next shiny
to collect and catalog.

Too smart for his own good,
too much sarcasm,
so many flaws,
he belongs in House Ravenclaw.

About Bartholomew Barker

    Oh so many words in here
    This one is a reader
    A crafter, a puzzler, a seeker
    More curious than courageous
    Gets by on cleverness and charm
    Ravenclaw it is.
