BERNARD A. FALLER St. Vrain No. 23, Longmont
Turn we our thoughts to early days, when o’er the stretching plains
The long procession wound its way of white-topped wagon trains.
Bearing brave souls to this new land, the mecca of their hopes,
Where wealtlh was found along the streams and on tile mountain slopes,
An army vast, together drawn, by God’s all-potent spell
Which stirs such fever in tile blood; its quest alone may quell.
Their settlements in valleys and on many a mountain side –
All types and classes of mankind, ‘mong whom e’er long was had
The struggle for supremacy between the good and bad.
‘Twas then each Mason knew his place, although as such unknown,
Nor rested till the right prevailed and wrong was overthrown.
No Lodge was here, but Brethren true were leaders in the van
Of each forced march of progress for the betterment of man.
For Order out of Chaos and from darkness into light
Hath ever been the teaching that a Mason cannot slight,
And where a voice must needs be raised, his lips can ne’er be dumb
Whose course is ever guided by the lesson of the Plumb.
Though well they served the common weal, the world may never know
Tile silent force of Masonry those many years ago.
From the 50th Anniversary Poem by P.G.M. Lawrence N. Greenleaf
