Double birthday surprise for superstar Engelbert Humperdinck

May 04, 2020

ByTom Mack 03 May 2020 Leicestershire Live

Singing superstar Engelbert Humperdinck has described how seeing his poems printed in the Leicester Mercury was a great start to his birthday.

The Leicestershire legend turned 84 yesterday and his picture appeared on the front page of the Mercury with his poems about coronavirus and the current uncertainty in the world printed inside.

His big day also began with another pleasing surprise – two yolks in his egg.

After reading the article he posted on his Facebook page: “What a lovely way to start the day!

“Thank you to The Leicester Mercury for a wonderful birthday surprise.

“I read it as I ate my brekkie - a double-yoked egg with toast - third time this week that has happened. I’ll take it as good luck.”

Engelbert, who lives between his mansion near Great Glen and his home in California is due to be touring and was due at the London Palladium on Monday night.

But due to the virus, he is currently isolating in Los Angeles where he has been inspired to pen some religious verse to share with his fans.

This is the first poem, called As The Prayer Goes, that was printed in the Mercury yesterday:

 

The Lord is my shepherd He watches over me. He helps me to accept the things I cannot change, or to know what the future is to be.

 

The path of life is so undefined to never know its shape, form or length of time.

A breeze can change and bring forth fear. A moment of discomfort makes one shed a tear.

Strength can be found when your belief is strong to give you the wisdom to know right from wrong.

In the quiet of mind, we live day by day, remember to talk to the one, who can show you the way.

This is the second poem he wrote, which is called Troubled World:

The world is at unrest and closed all its doors; nations are baffled with this transparent war.

We turn to our creator and in silence we pray to reveal a solution to this evil display.

Sins of the world is what it must be

So let us confess and set us all free.

A promise of purity is what we must preach to remove the ammunition that lies in the breech

And when the sounds of the hustle and bustle are back on the streets; only then we shall know the world is back on its feet.
