Aww, what a sweet poem — one that goes to show Enid's effortless way of mixing a realistic and familiar scene with a good dose of the magical. It's almost like a fairy-tale version of Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey — one of my favourite books when I was little, in which another kind-hearted policeman stops the city traffic to let a family of ducklings reach their home in the Boston Public Garden (Boston in Massachusetts, that is). :D Thanks for sharing this, Pete.
