Hope Springs Eternal

19 Apr 2012
'…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,
Then I call her: Hope, Hope come here, and she
Comes to me. . .'


After a family visit to Jerusalem, Bono signed out from the King David Hotel by citing a poem from 'Open Closed Open: Poems'  the final collection from Yehuda Amichai, regarded by many as Israel's greatest modern poet.
