A Rushed Gratitude (by the Romans), Lit.Op.2

Written by: Karlo De Leon

Grateful, Oh grateful, we do are grateful,
For this year you made merry and peaceful!
And you have been most humble God’s vessel,
Of love and concern- these all in you settled,

Joy to the angel, form of a mentor,
You made our knowledge to heaven’s sky soar,
You made our souls as pleasant as flowers,
And guide us through the rest of the hours,

Blessing you are to a grammar school’s life,
That departed us from times of great strife,
Alike Dark Age seemed endless as a wreath,
It is you that served as Elizabeth!

How honored we are to have such asset,
Would fail you not like the falling sunset,
Grateful, grateful, we really are grateful,
For this year you made merry and peaceful!

You are the salt in everyday’s dishes,
Every great cook shall have in their wishes,
The crucial pinch in our every day hence:
Without you, a day will have less its sense!
