Bono poem a high note for hotel staff..

Byline: MAEVE QUIGLEY

BONO surprised staff at a Jerusalem hotel by writing them a poem during his recent visit.

The U2 frontman left a little note and a drawing on paper at the Israeli city's King David Hotel.

The note read: "In Jerusalem, hope springs eternal.

"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."

He signed the letter: "With great thanks for great room in great hotel in great city, Bono," and then added the names of his wife Ali and two children Elijah and John who were on the visit with him.

An insider said: "Staff at the hotel were very surprised to find his little drawing."
