The Lodge where I belong - A Poem By Arthur R. Herrmann

The Lodge where I belong By Arthur R. Herrmann Though my lodge may lack the splendor Of a Temple or a Shrine, Or possess the gaudy fixtures that are classed as superfine,Yet the fellowship it offersis in a price beyond compare. And I wouldn’t trade it ever for life's treasures rich or bare!The handclasp firm, the word of cheer,Oh, such meanings they impart, The mystic ties of brotherhood that links us heart to heart!You'd really have to travel far, For the friendships quite so strong, As those one always find right here In the Lodge where I belong.When all my earthly travels end, And at last I'm borne to rest Where mortal hands no longer toil and I cease life's...

Let's Go To Lodge Tonight! - A Poem

Let's Go To Lodge Tonight! Unknown Author Let's Go To Lodge TonightMy brother, let's go to Lodge tonightYou haven't been for years.Let's don our Lambskin Apron whiteAnd sit among our peers.I feel a kind of longing, see,to climb those creaky stairsI know it'll be a thrill for meto lay aside my cares.We'll meet the Tyler at the doorand though he'll hesitate,we'll hear him say just as before,Come in or you'll be late.I'd like to get out on the floorCome on, let's get in lineI want to face the East once moreAnd give the same old sign.I want to hear the gavel rapthe Craftsmen to attentionand see the Master don his cap a night without dissention.So come! Pass up that picture...

Always a Mason - A Poem By Douglas Malloch

Always a Mason By Douglas Malloch Let no king quite put off his crown! I still would have him kingly when In some old inn the king sat down To banquet with his serving–men. I love a mild and merry priest, Whom Brothers toast, and neighbors prod Yet would I have him, at the feast, A little of the man of God.So with a Mason: I would see Him somewhat of a Mason still, Though far from Lodge–rooms he may be, In court, or counting–house, or mill. Whatever garment he may doff, What mark Masonic lay aside, I would not have him quite put off The Craft he lately glorified.A soldier is a soldier, though He lays the sword aside...

Brotherhood - A Poem By Edwin Markham

Brotherhood By Edwin Markham The crest and crownings of all good, Life′s final star, is Brotherhood For it will bring again to earth Her long lost Poesy and Mirth Will send new light on every face, A kingly power upon the race. And till it comes, we men are slaves, And travel downward to the dust of graves.Come, clear the way, then, clear the way: Blind creeds and kings have had their day. Break the dead branches from the path: Our hope is in the aftermath–– Our hope is in heroic men, Star led to build the world again. To this event the ages ran: Make way for Brotherhood––make way for man!
