Provincial Grand Lodge of Warwickshire

The Provincial Poet – otherwise known as W Bro Bill Clark, PGStdB, retired Provincial Grand Almoner – after a lengthy illness, which had us all worried, has been producing his poems again, and has given us his summary of the recent Provincial Grand Lodge meeting as below.

PROVINCIAL GRAND LODGE 

SATURDAY 19th MAY 2018

STONELEIGH WAS THE VENUE PICTURE THE SCENE
BLUE SKIES AND SUNSHINE ALL CALM AND SERENE
BRETHREN OF WARWICKSHIRE WEARING NEW TIES
WHATEVER THEIR STATURE RANK POSITION OR "SIZE"

ALL GATHERED TOGETHER WITH ONE AIM IN VIEW
TO SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER AND HONOUR THE FEW
WHO WERE RETIRING WITH DISTINCTION ON THIS DAY
ALLOWING OTHERS TO BE APPOINTED THEIR PART TO PLAY

THE PROVINCE WAS TRULY SEEN TO BE IN GOOD HEART
THE PROVINCIAL GRAND MASTER PLAYING HIS PART
LEADING THE WAY WITH SOME HUMOUR AND FUN
"FOR(C)ANDLES TO BE LIT" AND THIS WAS DULY DONE

WITH VISITING DIGNITARIES WELCOMED TO THE EVENT
CONSIDERABLE TIME THEREAFTER WAS PROPERLY SPENT
ACKNOWLEDGING THOSE WHO HAD GIVEN OF THEIR BEST
IN SERVING THE PROVINCE WITH GREAT ZEAL AND ZEST

WITH NEW BRETHREN IN POST ALL POSITIONS FILLED
CEREMONIAL PERFORMED BY THE "D C" WELL SKILLED
THE PROVINCIAL GRAND MASTER GAVE HIS "ADDRESS"
ENCOURAGING ALL TO USE THE SKILLS THEY POSSESS

TO PROMOTE THE GOOD OF FREEMASONRY TO OTHERS
WHO THEY MIGHT SEE AS POTENTIAL BROTHERS
A SUMMER BREAK TO BE ENJOYED --A WELL EARNED REST
MAY THE ENSUING YEAR PROVE TO BE -- ONE OF THE BEST
