"One merit of poetry few persons will deny: it says more and in fewer words than prose." - Voltaire. This is true and makes it all the more nicer to convey your innermost feelings to the one superior to you in this form. You might not immediately see results because any poem needs to be grasped before being truly appreciated. Your boss is that one person who has seen you travel through your career rollercoaster of ups and downs. A small token of appreciation, like a piece of verse scribbled within a card or letter, would be perfect on the occasion of Boss's Day. Although there is an initial fear of whether the boss will be fully satisfied with your work or not, it is the thought that counts! Any creative mind that has the ability to glorify the subject of their poem is termed a poet. So, it doesn't matter if you are an amateur or pro. Go for it! There are several verses that have been written in honour of bosses all around the world and all of them have been duly appreciated, to say the least. Employees must take the initiative in framing something unique and personal in memory of their beloved supervisor.
A bigger question regarding the content of the poem now arises. Yes, we are well-aware that such queries are inevitable. Envision the character, personality and appearance of your boss. S/he might not be the best looking or a perfect stunner but s/he has definitely shaped your career path to make you a successful person. Isn't this reason enough for you to say a few simple words about him/her? Compassion, inspiration, motivation, encouragement, leadership and other qualities such as these can all be captured with some beautiful lines of poetry. Speaking about how you were influenced, your attitude towards this profession and workplace satisfaction is something you owe to your seniors. Had it not been these people, life in your office could have been different - worse, maybe! The mental and physiological well-being of a working individual is entirely dependent on the boss. 'Thank you' is a small phrase that can never really compensate for the magnanimity of your boss's heart. It might not be evident, but s/he is the only person who might be willing to give you that second chance. There are so many interesting descriptions of a boss. One of them is: A boss is a coach who stands behind their staff and says, 'We are a team' and 'There is no 'I' in a team'!
A misconceived notion about the art of poetry is that rhyming words need to fall in place! Well, certain techniques of poetry do involve certain literary allusions like metaphors, alliterations, idioms, similes etc. but this kind of quality is neither required nor expected of you! Simple constructions of grammatically correct sentences where imagination and emotions come into play are all that's needed. So, pick out some of your best lines, brace yourself for the vivid creativity and write your boss a poem that would mean so much more than just picking out an expensive gift from the store. The beauty of the poem lies, not in the lyrics, but in the extensive time and thought spent thinking about your boss!
