This is a very special April for me, and a very special first poem for this 2014 edition of National Poetry Month. Tomorrow, Saturday, April 5th, I am getting married to my best friend, soul mate, partner, and fiancee, Samantha.

Here is the poem:

“Snape: an assay”

No one trusts him,
Except Dumbledore,
And we’re never sure
The Headmaster isn’t fooled
Or foiled by Occlumency.

Head of Slytherin House,
Speaker of parseltongue,
Long passed-over for Dark Arts
Professor, relegated
To Potions Master,
Until it’s nearly too late.

As a boy, he was shamed
By Harry Potter’s father,
And secretly in love
With the girl who would become
Harry’s mother, Lily.
He has no time for “foolish
Wand-waving and silly incantations.”

Is he loyal to the Dark Lord
Or to Dumbledore?
Hard to say, could go either way.
His sallow skin and greasy black hair,
A Death Eater’s mark 
On his arm, covered in black.
He looks more raven
Than snake; although clever,
He has none of the raven’s
Cooperative traits – or does he?

Snape resents Harry’s fame
And protected status,
But can do no real harm to him
--he has Lily’s eyes.
For Snape, love is unrequited,
But revenge is neither sweet
Nor enough to bring her back.

--Scott Edward Anderson
