Masonic Membership Card – A Poem

Masonic Membership Card By Unknown Author hold in my hand a little scrap of paper 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches in size. It is of no intrinsic worth, not a bond, not a check or receipt for valuables, yet it is my most priceless possession. It is my membership card in a Masonic Lodge. It tells me that I have entered into a spiritual kinship with my fellow Masons to practice charity in word and deed; to forgive and forget the faults of my brethren; to hush the tongues of...

The Level and the Square – A Poem By Rob Morris

The Level and the Square By Rob Morris We meet upon the level and we part upon the square These words have precious meaning and are practiced everywhere Come let us contemplate them, they are worthy of a thought From the ancient times of Masonry these symbols have been taught We meet upon the level, every country, sect and creed The rich man from his mansion, the poor man from the field For wealth is not considered within our outer door And we all meet on the...

WE MEET ON THE LEVEL – A POEM BY PETER RYAN

We Meet on the Level By Peter Ryan We meet on the level, my Brothers and me, We encourage good men into our society.

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 offers is 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...

Labor – A Poem By Silas H. Shepherd

Labor Silas H. Shepherd He who acts upon the Square Will always well with all compare. The Mason uses tools of love To build a Temple planned above. The Gauge he constantly employs To measure work and limit joys. The Plumb imbues his soul and heart With love Divine and sacred art. The Level guides his daily act And makes good fellowship a fact.
