"You're a great wizard, Harry."
"Not as good as you."
"Me?! Books! And cleverness! There are more important things, Harry--friendship, and bravery, and--oh, Harry, just be careful."

Black smoke pouring forth
Darkening the afternoon
As truck sirens wail
The window's ladder
Helps bring people to safety
And then is removed
The fire trucks arrive
But I can't see the hoses
'Cause I drive away

The author's comments:
I saw a fire in an apartment building, and I was really curious about what was going to happen and if the people were going to be okay, but my family left and I had to go too. I came home and wrote this, still wondering what had happened.
