Today in this post you will find some of the best and relatable poems for employees shared by Thomas Salzano that can easily relate to:
- Invictus by William Ernest Henley
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
- Quiet Work by Matthew Arnold
One lesson, Nature, let me learn of thee,
One lesson which in every wind is blown,
One lesson of two duties kept at one
Though the loud world proclaim their enmity-
Of toil, unsevered from tranquillity!
Of labour, that in lasting fruit outgrows
Far noisier schemes,accomplished in repose,
Too great for haste, too high for rivalry
- Work Without Hope by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
All Nature seems at work. Slugs leave their lair-
The bees are stirring- birds are on the wing-
And Winter slumbering in the open air,
Wears on his smiling face a dream of Spring!
And I the while, the sole unbusy thing,
Nor honey make,nor pain,nor build,nor sing…
These are a few poems that are related to work and motivation shared by Thomas Salzano, especially for employees.
