You know you must be on to something when your writing gets tweeted by J.K. Rowling herself.

On Friday morning, teacher Kate Clanchy from Oxford, UK, shared a poem written by one of her students.

“The kids always write the best poems after they’ve stopped listening to me,” she wrote. 

“For example, I usually tell them to avoid rhyming couplets because they govern the poem and tend to be comic — but this has heavy rhyme, and it’s heartbreaking.”

Here’s the full poem, written by 15-year-old Louis:
