Masonic Poet’s corner

Many things have been written about Freemasonry in countless books and in papers to be delivered to Masonic research associations, but how many of us know that there is wealth of beautiful material about Freemasonry written in the form of poems.

Some of the world’s greatest men of letters who were Freemasons themselves, have written some wonderful poems. Let’s take Rudyard Kipling and Robbie Burns as just two examples, yet equally some less well known Masons have embodied the teachings and philosophy of Freemasonry in their poems and we will take a look at these too.

There will be one or two poems appearing in this feature every month, selected by our ‘Masonic Poet Laureate’, Fred Lomax and we hope you enjoy reading them.

This month we have a  poem by a relatively little known Masonic poet, WBro Fay Hempstead who resided in the State of Arkansas.
