JERUSALEM U2 lead singer Bono left a Hope-full note at Jerusalems King David hotel following a surprise visit to Israel. The note, which offered the hotel great thanks for great room in great hotel in great city, centered on a poem which said that Hope is like a faithful dog.
In Jerusalem, Hope springs eternal, the poem read.
Hope is like a faithful dog, sometimes she runs ahead of me to check the future, to sniff it out and then I call to her: Hope, Hope, come here, and she comes to me. I pet her, she eats out of my hand and sometimes she stays behind, near some other hope maybe to sniff out whatever was. Then I call her my Despair. I call out to her. Here, my little Despair, come here and she comes and snuggles up, and again I call her Hope.
The note also included Bonos sketch of A Dog called Hope.
Bono was on a personal visit to Israel.
