Setting: A sad and rejected Neville Longbottom ascends the steps of the Astronomy Tower to find time to be alone, and to reminisce....

Spoiler alerts for:
  • Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban


One night,
Not a sound throughout Hogwarts
We were all soundly sleeping,
And then Ron gave a scream.
He saw Sirius,
We didn't know just how he got in...
But Ron was sure 'twasn't a dream...

Blame it all on my memory
I wrote down the week's passwords,
And promptly lost the list
Sir Cadogan let Sirius in, now Professor McG's
Fervently wishing
I'll cease to exist....

Every day I seem to lose
My poor old pet toad, Trevor...
It takes me hours to find him, might be
Easier to find a bezoar!

She gave me a Remembrall
It's the size of a marble
What it does is turn red
And that tells me
That I've forgotten something, I dread...
But what it is... escaped my head...

Oh I know that they all think
I don't have magic in me
But soon I'll learn it
And soon I'll get it
If they'll just let me be me....

I will work on my memory
And soon I will earn house points
I'll make Gryffindor proud
I'll learn my lessons
I'll make the grade, and by end of term
they'll root for me... and cheer out loud....
