Don't tell Dumbledore

‘Don’t tell Dumbledore’, was few frequently muttered by Hagrid (Robbie Coltrane). This week’s poem is a tribute to the loveable character, wonderfully portrayed by Robbie Coltrane. Sadly, the actor passed away last week. He’ll be sorely missed by Harry Potter fans and fans generally of the late actor. He left a fantastic legacy in a great career . . .

 

Don’t Tell Dumbledore

 

A massive frame,

but bigger heart;

poor Hagrid told

you are not smart . . .

 

As wizard banned,

and wand broken,

Hagrid’s magic

is unspoken

 

But certain spells

are still so loud,

when cast from one

to goodness vowed

 

The children love

Hagrid’s own ways,

that lights up lives

and brightens days

 

And times that he

breaks magic law

Hagrid says ‘don’t

tell Dumledore!’

Last year we published a feature on the significance of the Harry Potter film franchise. There wasn’t much specifically about Hagrid, but the films just wouldn’t be the same without him. Both May the Verse Be with You and SciFiPulse wish to express our condolences to the family and friends of Robbie Coltrane, as well as his vast hordes of fans . . .
