By E. Rogers

Beside an open grave we stand,
As others, staunch and true have stood,
Brother! I greet you hand to hand,
With this sure pledge of brotherhood

And tho' our paths may be apart,
My feet shall haste to help your need,
And foot to foot - as heart to heart,
Bring kindly words and trusty deed.

Pray for me! in your hour of prayer,
And I, for you, will suppliant be,
Humbly imploring blessings there
>From our Creator - knee to knee.

Tell me all you'd have to do
For all the dear ones, loved the best,
Sacred is the trust, which you
Whispered to me breast to breat,-

Clasp me in a brother's arms,
Parting this, we fear no slip-
No false tongue - no false alarms
Bid me doubt a brother's grip.

Life and death - so close combined,
Bind each for the other's good,
Till in the Lodge above, we find
Sorrow past - Peace understood.

© 2017 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
