A verse about meeting Sir Dave

17 Oct 2009 / in general stuff, natural world

A glimpse of Sir David

He’s shown us all the natural world
And brought such viewing pleasure
For 50 years we’ve watched him now
He’s a national treasure

He’s told us all about the lives
Of creatures great and small
Of how they rise, and grow and breed
And eventually fall

He’s shared some great moments of his life
With us on the telly
Like when he met gorilla friends
And turned us all to jelly

For three hours I queued with hundreds more
For him to sign my book
We waited patiently in line
Just to get a look

An old man with a pen in hand
Sitting at a table
As I meet him I’m overwhelmed
To speak I’m hardly able

Not on a screen this time, oh no
He’s there in front of me!
He signs his name and then looks up
It’s my face he wants to see

The things that his old eyes have seen!
Beast, bird, bear and bat
And for this brief moment of his life
It’s me he’s looking at!
