Acrostic - George Washington

Unknown Author

G reat patron of our noble art divine,
E xtend thy all enliv'ning orient ray,
O n Masonry with ardent lustre shine,
R efulgent shineand usher in new day
G reat architect, bright morning star of fame,
E ach Mason glories in his patrons name.

W hat's great and good, and beautiful to see,
A re all compriz'd, and to be found in thee
S tatesman, hero, patriot, brother dear,
H umane, benevolent, just and sincere
I ntrepid soldier, guardian of our land,
N e'er let us fall beneath oppressor's hand,
G ently lead and guide us on to fame,
T hat we may stand recorded with thy name
O n Mason's hearts thy name shall stand secure,
N or be forgot while Masonry endures.

Commentary

On September 12, 1789, in the New York Weekly Museum (a newspaper), the following poem was printed. While the poem’s author is unknown, the subject of the poem is well-known to all Freemasons. The subject is our own beloved Wor. Bro. George Washington, and it is one of only five acrostic poems known to have been written about America’s most famous Freemason. Entitled simply “An Acrostic”, it is shown below for your reading pleasure.
