Sample 'Pat' Retirement Poem:


Pat with you, simply where do we start?

You hold such a special place in our heart,

31 years on the front desk scene,

We should call you our KBL Solicitors Queen!


From the day you began with that blonde hair do,

You’ve dressed immaculately, usually in blue,

Glam lipstick and earrings, you still look the same,

What’s your secret? You put the office to shame!


But it’s your personality Pat, which we all adore,

Kind, conscientious, bubbly and more,

You can solve anything with a hilarious one line,

Our fountain of knowledge for all of this time!


Pat the agony Aunt, you always understand,

Offer your words of wisdom with a helping hand,

From our new homes, babies to walking down the aisle,

You welcome everyone’s stories with a Mawdsley Street smile!


12pm is your famous tuna lunch slot,

And that switch board opens, 8.30am on the dot,

You ensure we answer our calls each day,

If we’re not at out desks, you hunt us down like prey!


So Pat, as you retire in your 31styear,

We have to commend you on an outstanding career,

You keep our ship going, we’re just the crew,

The best receptionist in the world is you!


We hear the retired life is the best,

So light a candle for you and your well earnt rest,

Enjoy the choir, time with Joy and Jane,

Perhaps a few more rainy holidays in Spain?


We’ll all miss you dearly, you know we will,

Our new recruit has some big shoes (and handbags) to fill, 

But for now it’s afternoon tea and celebrations,

Pat you’re one in a million, huge congratulations!


The poetry process

Our quick & easy poetry process:

  1. Place your order. Before you check out with payment you will see a section 'TELL US THE FACTS!' which will ask you enter the full details of the person you wish us to write your poem about.
  2. We ask for at least 10 facts about the subject to help us write a verse about them, the more details you can give the better. It really helps us to get to know who we are writing about. Think about their likes, dislikes, habits, hobbies, quirks and traits, why not throw in a funny story as well!
  3. Give us 3 days to turn your subject into a personalised, one-off poem! The rhyme is emailed to you and at this point you can choose to tweak or comment on the words until you are 100% happy, before it goes to print.
  4. Once we have your final sign off on the words, we’ll print your personalised gift, package it up and post it out.
