  “A scarlet steam engine was waiting next to a platform  packed with people. A sign overhead said Hogwarts Express, eleven o’clock. Harry looked behind him and saw a wrought-iron archway where the barrier had been, with  the words Platform Nine and Three-Quarters on it.
  Smoke from the engine drifted over the heads of the chattering crowd, while cats of every color wound here and there between their legs. Owls hooted to one another in a disgruntled sort of way over the babble and the scraping of heavy trunks.”

Happy September 1st, y’all!

happy 1st september! 

I gotta get back to Hogwarts,
I gotta get back to school.
Gotta get myself to Hogwarts,
Where everybody knows I’m cool.

Back to wizards and witches, and magical beasts,
To goblins and ghosts and to magical feasts.
It’s all that I love, and it’s all that I need.
HOGWARTS, HOGWARTS, I think I’m going back—-
