To Infinity and Beyond

Toddler’s train set.
Round the figure of eight
The model trains go,
Round and round and round.
Double OO gauge met,
Round the figure gyrate.

Dad dreams of Copenhagen Fields
Or the charm of Tetley Mills
But Alfie just loves
Round and round and round.
Dad’s never-ending love shields
The miniature railway’s thrills.

Ribbons of eight.
Endlessly the engine follows
Along the brightly lit tracks,
Round and round and round.
Imaginary passengers and phantom freight
Happy hours swallows.

Father and son share
A boundless, endless bond.
And Alfie’s eyes widen
Round and round and round.
Lemniscate curves and looping childcare
Take Dad and Alfie to infinity and beyond.
