The Poetic Works of E. L. Hannam

The Festive Board

Brethren stand to await the call,

From the D.C. at the door,

Brethren receive your Worshipful Master

As he escorts him across the floor.

The Master sounds his gavel, as

All stand behind their chairs.

Pray silence for the Chaplain,

Who will lead us all in prayers.

The Brethren then are seated,

Their wine glassed to the brim.

The I.P.M. performs his task,

At the toast list he begins.

As he sounds the worthy gavel

The Master will then rise

Brother Wardens, now report your charge

With their gavels they reply.

Fully charged in the West, Worshipful Master

From the Senior warden's chair

Fully charged in the South, Worshipful Master

Under the Junior Warden's care.

The toast list then is followed

Along with flowing wine

Plus that special toast across the world,

To Absent Brethren at the stroke of nine.

At this point a special poem,

From IMPS can now be read

These said words from Rudyard Kipling,

To assist their daily bread

© 2018 The Ashlar Company “I received my ring today! The transfer from USA to SA was a long process. Thank you for advising an international courier service rather than the regular postal services or I might still have been waiting :)

I would just like to thank you and the team at the Ashar Company for your absolute dedication to perfection. May I ask if the symbols etc on my ring were lazer cut? The detail is so intricate and fine.The quality is higher than I had expected. It truly is a work of art. And I shall wear it always, with pride.

Best Wishes” Brother John, South Africa
