Keep your guests entertained by having them make up and/or listen to Harry Potter Haiku.


Pen or quill
Paper or parchment


Haiku are brief poems of seventeen syllables, usually with five each in the first and last lines, and seven in the middle:

from all directions
winds bring petals of cherry
into the bird lake

Jo Rowling’s books provide many great examples for inspiration in this ancient Asian form of poetry:

Flint with the Quaffle—
passes Spinnet— passes Bell—
hit hard in the face
