The long block

We walk to your preschool
and you inform me
that the sidewalk
is train tracks

and monsters
live in houses
along the way

the squirrel we watch
hurry his loot into the tree
is named Pelican

and the snow
will turn back into rain
if we sing really fast

it is only a block away from home
but it takes us a long time
not because your legs are small
but for all the believing
you do along the way.
