Yes, Miss Granger? Professor
I was wondering if you could tell us about the Chamber of Secrets.
You all know, of course
That Hogwarts was founded over a thousand years ago
By the four greatest witches and wizards of the age:
Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff
Rowena Ravenclaw and Salazar Slytherin.
Now, three of the founders coexisted quite harmoniously.
One did not. Three guesses who.
Salazar Slytherin wished to be more selective
About the students admitted to Hogwarts.
He believed magical learning should be kept within all magic families.
In other words, purebloods.
Unable to sway the others, he decided to leave the school.
Now, according to legend
Slytherin had built a hidden chamber in this castle
Known as the Chamber of Secrets.
Though, shortly before departing, he sealed it
Until that time when his own true Heir returned to the school.
The Heir alone
Would be able to open the Chamber
And unleash the horror within, and by so doing
Purge the school of all those who
In Slytherin's view, were unworthy to study magic.
Naturally, the school has been searched many times.
No such chamber has been found.
Professor? What exactly does legend tell us lies within the Chamber?
