Adios Amigos! Adieu, my Friend!


‘We'll miss you very much! ' I say truly;
You did your job so well and yet gladly;
The void you leave will be felt quite badly;
The toughest works, you carried out coolly!

Oh, what a charming person, you had been!
Your double-edged sword struck the wrong-doers;
You were an asset to the man called Dean;
If not for you, things could have gone much worse!

At times, you seemed not trust-worthy at all!
Nevertheless, you went by rules in force;
You meant no harm to anyone, of course;
In face of problems, you froze like a wall!

Your editing remained superb in style;
You trimmed the claws and pulled out rotten teeth;
You added fragrance and removed all bile;
You made the write-up look pretty and neat!

You never hurt a person by your words;
Admirable's your heart of love, concern;
The passages dark shone lit by lantern;
Your anger flew away like tiny birds!

You never spoke bad words or hurt a soul;
You gave each one, the credit that was due!
Your obeisance performed the magic role;
The truth finally came into full view!

You were a thorn but pricked no one or bled;
You were the cane that hit but pained no one;
Without your glance all things remained half-done;
You gave back life to letters that looked dead!

Your tenure went off smoothly till the end;
Sometimes, your masters made you feel so bad;
You did not fail the truth to well defend;
A God-believer, you never looked sad!

May God bless you with health and happiness!
May God grant you much wealth and long life-span;
May God give you a mind sans laziness;
May God reward your toil in ways He can!

May God bestow you cheer and mental peace!
Have a pleasurable retired life of ease!

Fondly dedicated to Mr. Khaleel,
Administrative Officer, IRT PMC, Perundurai

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
