The Lightness of Love
by karelia
K+ (PG)

Belongs not to me
Potterverse to JKR
Nathan to dear Fer

He walked on the sand
Again, as he did daily
Barefoot felt so good

The white stone called him
Again, as it did daily
He sat down on it

He was comfortable
And the stone began to tell
Its long history

Interesting snippets
Of a girl not long ago
Sitting down on it

Longing for someone
Someone she’d known long ago
Longing for—a git?

Did he hear that right?
Messy-haired know-it-all, her
Really, was it her?

She whom he’d dreamt of
Too often to count the times
Perhaps she liked him?

‘Thank you, Stone,’ he said
Then returned back home, barefoot
No shoes still felt good

He considered it
Wearing no shoes in classes
Instead he sought her

‘Good day, Miss Granger.’
She stared at him and his feet
‘Hello,’ she whispered

She stretched out her hand
‘Shall we go for a walk, sir?’
‘Lady, I’d love to.’

They walked on the grounds
Until a white stone was reached
‘Home,’ both voices said

‘I dreamt,’ she started
‘As did I,’ his words came forth
‘I heard,’ the stone said

‘Get together, you
‘The love is there between you
‘Live a happy life!’

And they both obeyed
And Nathan was born to them
True joy had arrived

Every year they went
To visit an old, white stone
Who said, ‘Hello, dears’

And they greeted it
With happiness and much love
‘Hello, dear white stone’

The old white stone smiled
‘Dear humans, it feels so good
To have spread such love’

Hermione and Snape
Felt much of the loved stone’s warmth
Nathan felt its love

‘Mum, Dad, it loves you’
He stated matter of fact
‘And I love you, too.’

Grateful thanks to Annie for the beta.

Written for ferporcel on her birthday.
