There Is No Better Bonus than Just You
There is no better bonus than just you,
Of more immediate and lasting worth.
Though self-denying, what we say is true,
Having knowledge of the good you do,
Even as the turning of the Earth
Brings forth hopes and resolutions new.
Of benevolent bosses sing, for there are few!
Sing, O sing, at the year's rebirth,
Songs of gentle hearts and grateful mirth!
