The Builder, Anamosa, Iowa, April, 1917
square that you wear mean the test by your God
Of the work that you do, and the word that you speak,
will of your mind, the thought of your heart,
Past that is gone, of the Future you seek?
Compasses you wear, does it mean that you move
Within the true bound appointed and sure,
Restricted desire, pleasure
yielding of self to the bonds that endure?
Triangle too -great emblem of Him
Maker, and Master, Beginning and End, -
wear it to show that He is to you
Source and the Aim that all others transcend?
means the gold trowel that hangs at your chain?
Does it tell of the mortar of Love that you spread?
joint well cement with fine brotherly love?
stones that now lie in the well-mortared bed?
If 'tis not so, then take the poor jewels away;
meaningless bauble will only deceive
Yourself and the others you meet on your way
meaningless lies which none ever believe.
