He's Here! (Ode To A New Grandson) - Poem by Bob Oldfield

He's here!
He's out of hiding
And ready to face the world

He's here!
He's joined the race.. the human one..
Long distance

He's switched apartments
More elbow room
A chance to run off steam
Go out and beat the world

He's been training for this
And now he's here
And ready to go
Go, Eli, go!
