By D. C. Tidwell

Long years ago, I climbed a stair
And rapped at an ancient door.
I passed within a temple fair
And trod the checkered floor.

I passed between the pillars two
I climbed the winding stair
The letter G then met my view
I earned my wages there.

I knelt beside the altar fair
I counted not the cost.
I searched afar with earnest care,
But still the Word was lost.

Though some may think my search absurd,
When time shall ebb and fail,
I hope to learn the final Word
Beyond life's mystic veil.
