Puzzle Corner:

Many of you might recognize this week's puzzle from a certain book/movie
series ^^ This one has an associated image:


















*Danger lies before you, while safety lies behind, Two of us will help you,
whichever you would find, One among us seven will let you move ahead,
Another will transport the drinker back instead, Two among our number hold
only nettle wine, Three of us are killers, waiting hidden in line. Choose,
unless you wish to stay here for evermore, To help you in your choice, we
give you these clues four: First, however slyly the poison tries to hide
You will always find some on nettle wine’s left side; Second, different are
those who stand at either end, But if you would move onwards, neither is
your friend; Third, as you see clearly, all are different size, Neither
dwarf nor giant holds death in their insides; Fourth, the second left and
the second on the right Are twins once you taste them, though different at
first sight. Which two of the potions pictured will help you(/Harry) move
forward/backward?*
