A Torch of Light

By Ezekiel M. Bey

One dark clear night I looked outside
And wondered what's beyond the lights
The twinkle dots a world so vast
The blinks of stars remind of glass

My mind began to leave my soul
To travel far beyond the poles
The speed of light became a breeze
I wondered what, what could this be

An infinite space so broad to grasp
No human feeling could ever match
The guide I had I could not see
Then I remembered my three degrees

I saw the lights becoming close
With guides unknown of many host
I understood what just appeared
Masonic travel became so clear

I just perceived what's to unfold
My first entrance, which I behold
I thought of all, in mind in me
And recollected my first degree

The more I traveled the more I saw
Between two stars my mind had told
A story far beyond the spheres
Of working tools I held so dear

And then I fell in deep black holes
Passing in and on in chambers toll
I thought again what could this be
And then I thought of two degrees

My mind controlled all moves I made
But to return I wished and prayed
I swore to keep all oaths I took
The 3rd degree all clear it spoke

On my return I saw the Lord
And asked him why, what was this all
The birth of man is but a porch
To live the life of burning torch

Can't you remember I spake the word
And you appeared with all to learn
With force and power LET THERE BE LIGHT
And I became a torch of Light.
