A Mason’s Wish

Posted by Bro. Zabinsky on Aug 29, 2014 in Masonic Poetry

“A MASON’S WISH”

I WISH THERE WERE WORDS, I COULD MAKE RHYME,
TO SOOTHE THE HEARTS, AND OPEN THE MIND.
OF NON-MASON MEN, IN THEIR EVER DAY LIFE,
TO SEE A SMALL GLIMMER, OF MASONIC LIGHT.

IT WOULD TAKE JUST A SPARK, AND A WELCOME RIGHT HAND,
TO MAKE A GOOD FELLOW, A MUCH BETTER MAN.
TO ANSWER HIS QUESTIONS, AND CALM HIS FEARS,
OF THINGS HE’S HEARD, OVER THE YEARS.

THERE ARE NO CULTS, IN OUR LODGES OF BLUE,
WE BELIEVE IN GOD, HE BELIEVES IN US TOO.
EDUCATION IS THE WAY, TO OPEN MEN’S EYES,
SO THEY CAN SEE THROUGH, ALL THE VISCOUS LIES.

CREATED BY THOSE, WITH NOT ENOUGH GOOD,
TO WEAR A WHITE APRON, AND STAND WHERE WE STOOD.
TO LEAD THEM FROM DARKNESS, AS WE TRAVELED ONE NIGHT,
AND INSTILL IN THEIR HEART, THE DESIRE FOR MORE LIGHT.

TO WALK IN THE SHOES, OF HIRAM ABIFF,
AND FEEL THE COMPASSION, OF A BROTHER’S STRONG GRIP.
EACH TIME WE APPROACH, THE ALTAR TO PRAY,
MEMORIES FLOOD BACK, OF THAT SPECIAL DAY.

WHEN THE EARTH WAS VOID, AND DARK ALL AROUND,
THERE WERE NO BIRDS, NO BEAUTIFUL SOUNDS.
SLOWLY THERE CAME, STEPS FROM THE EAST,
THE HEAVENS OPENED UP, LIGHT WAS UNLEASHED.

SHAFTS OF LIGHT, STREAK THROUGH THE SKY,
AS THE MASTER APPROACHED, MY BROTHERS STOOD BY.
A TRIANGULAR FORM STATIONED IN PLACE,
LIGHT FROM THE EAST, TO SHINE ON MY FACE.

BY MY RIGHT HAND, HE BADE ME ARISE,
WORDS FROM THE MASTER, WERE TRUE AND WISE.
EVER SO EAGER, TO NEVER LOSE SIGHT,
ALWAYS IN SEARCH, OF MASONIC LIGHT.

ASCENDING THE STAIRS, BY THREE, FIVE AND SEVEN,
LIGHTING MY WAY, TO THE GATES OF HEAVEN.
Ben R. Steen Copyright 2002

The Trowel

Posted by Bro. Zabinsky on Mar 8, 2012 in Masonic Poetry

Masonic Trowel
T is for the tools of the first three degrees
R for every rule as each brother agrees;
O is for the oath, in making all brothers true
W is for the work each one of us must do;
E is for the effort to answer every call
L stands for love…the most important thing of all;

These letters spell TROWEL, and as every brother knows;
It spreads love and friendship, wherever it goes.

Masonic Membership Card

Posted by Bro. Zabinsky on Mar 8, 2012 in Masonic Poetry

I 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.
