A Poem by W. Brother Harley Johnson, which I believe you will like. W.B. Harley is a Past Master of Koochiching Lodge #270 at International Falls, Minnesota. Brother Harley is also a Past Grand Lodge District Representative for District #1 of the Grand Lodge of Minnesota

Last night, I dreamed,I was in a room, and could not see

Questions were asked my answers were three.

Someone said just waitothers must know of your quest their answers return its for the best.

Someone said let him enterI could not, there was something barring my way, then someone said knock and I grasped the ring.

I lifted to the wall and then let it fallan answer returned oflet him enter our hall.

I could not see, it was darkand lonely out there and some one said follow your guide you have nothing to fear, I walked in that darkness for many a mile, or so it seemed, each step courage to take this must be the end of my dream.

Yet I traveled on toward I knew not each step followed the other with questions asked , and answers given by another,I was taught to walk as you should given the road I had started on and brought to place where I made promises upon.

I was given a Apron by which to labor with yet I was told never to place Moral stains on it.

Than they showed me their tools and showed me how to use them to a builders use a place where my soul my dream to send some where along the road my eyes become unheeded that I should see what so long was in a darkness hooded.

My dream was so strange that I knew I saw a truth, that we ask for light so we as men shall find the vineyards truth.
