The Masonic Trowel

I like to go out visiting Once in a little while,
It does a fellow good I think And never cramps his style; You make a lot of worthwhile friends Wherever Masons meet,
You'll always get some food for thought From south,
from west,
from east.
To hear the minutes being read out Is quite an education,
Watch the officers do their work,
Gives appreciation. Comparing work as it goes on Is interesting too,
Some mighty fine ideas you’ll get,
And a perspective,
So doing this you'll broaden out,
Your mind is what I mean,
A little friendly criticism Gives satisfaction keen; It happens sometimes you will have A little work to do,
That makes you feel like one of them And that's the proper view.
And when the lodge puts on the fourth That ends the evening right,
One never knows a brother 'till He' s eaten with him at night; There's such a wealth of wisdom,
Given o'er the festive board,
At times a wise old P.M. gives His private tracing board.
He makes new symbols of the old,
Old truths stand out like new,
For they've been thought out by the years Of understanding true; You've made new friends,
renewed the old,
Have heard a grand discourse,
But oh,
the joy in what we term Fraternal intercourse; Why don't you go out visiting,
You' 11 find it is worthwhile,
It keeps one right up on his toes,
And never cramps his style.
