The Lodge Room Over Simpkin’s Store – A Poem By Lawrence Greenleaf

The Lodge Room Over Simpkin's Store By Lawrence Greenleaf The plainest Lodge room in the land was Over Simpkins' Store Where Friendship Lodge had met each month for fifty' years or more. When o'er the earth the moon full-orbed, had cast her brightest beams, The Brethren came from miles around on horseback and in teams, And 0! what heavy grasp of hand, what welcome met them there, As mingling with the waiting groups they slowly mount the stair, Exchanging fragmentary news or prophecies of crop, Until they...

The Beacon Light – A Poem By Rob Morris

The Beacon Light By Rob Morris A city set upon a hill Cannot be hid Exposed to every eye, it will Over surrounding plain and vale, An influence shed, And spread the light of peace afar, Or blight the land with horrid war.

By The Work You Did Today – A Poem By Charles L. Mead

By The Work You Did Today By Charles L. Mead Can you say tonight in parting with the day that's slipping past That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed?
