The Masonic Poem

I would rather see a Mason, than hear one any day,

I would rather one would walk with me, than merely show me the way.

The eye is a better pupil and more willing than the ear,

Fine council is confusing, but examples are more clear.

And the best of all Masons, are the men who live their creeds,

For to see the good in action, is what everybody needs.

I can soon learn how to do it if you will let me see it done,

I can watch your hands in action, but your tounge too fast may run.

And the lectures that you deliver may be wise and true,

But I'd rather get my lesson by watching what you do.

For I may misunderstand you, and the high advise you give,

But there's no misunderstanding, how you act and how you live.


by MW Thomas R Dougherty P.G.M., New Jersey
