Featured Guest Post: ‘Nearly There’ Disney poem by Sophie Jo

We have a very special treat for you on the blog today! Read a beautiful poem inspired by Disney written by the fabulous Sophie Jo.

nearly there


the best of all is right before.

almost, anyway.

i try to be the first, the one to see a sign:

“look, there! look, left!”

and the tallest bits of magic meet our eyes.

mine squint, full of tears.

shots of pink — i remember the smell — and

a rocket that could take me to space, a

tower i’m never quite brave enough to climb.

but maybe this time.

This poem is from Sophie Jo’s collective work: kids grown up. Sophie Jo was kind enough to send us a copy and we loved her work so much we just had to share it!

Sorry if this seems a bit nosy. By law we have to ask for your date of birth to check that you are over 12 years old. If you’re 12 or under please ask a parent or guardian to do this bit for you. Thanks very much.
