My Hero: Michael Crawford - Poem by Angela Wybrow

My hero is the brilliant Michael Crawford.
I consider him to be a very talented actor.
If you were to ask me why I like him so,
I could reel you off quite a few factors.

He’s known to be a perfectionist.
Things will never ‘just have to do.’
He knows that practice makes perfect:
A fact which has been endlessly been proved.

In the series ‘Some Mother’s Do ‘Ave ‘Em’,
He very bravely did all of his own stunts.
Michael, himself, is really pretty intelligent,
But his character, Frank Spencer, was a dunce.

He’s currently starring in ‘The Wizard of Oz’,
And must be an extremely busy man,
But he still puts aside a little time,
To write back to all of his loyal fans.

He’s more than happy to meet his fans.
He smiles at them and happily chats away.
I haven’t had the chance to meet him yet,
But, I really hope that I do some day.

I’ve seen him in ‘The Wizard Of Oz’,
And, in two other West End shows:
‘Barnum’ and ‘The Woman in White.’
He’s always a hit wherever he goes.

Even though he’s really popular and well known,
He appears to be very pleasant and down to earth.
He may well be very famous and have much money,
But nothing compares to what these virtues are worth.

Age wise, he’s now only a year from being seventy,
And, some people would, by now, consider retiring,
But he has so much enthusiasm and spirit and drive:
These are factors which I find extremely inspiring.

He has a great sense of humour,
And will often make people laugh.
He said of a signed photo he sent me once,
He’d heard that it made a good board for darts!

He always appears to very kind and considerate,
And his personality seems to be really warm.
Maybe it’s due to all these endearing factors,
That he has taken the whole world by storm.

He’s also a really wonderful singer,
And, my ear, his voice does please.
His velvet tones really melt your heart.
I have quite a number of his fab CDs.

He has a wonderful presence on the stage.
He can light up a stage, as brightly as fire.
People cheer him whenever he first appears.
Him, you just can’t help but really admire.
