The Compass on the Square

Tom Lyle

You meet them every day.
they are not hard to find.
They search for every way
to make the rough refined.

Their sacrifice in red
is known to Liberty
as those who dare to tread
that road which makes man free.

From broom to crown I sing
of those who strive to bear,
(in heart as well as ring)
the compass on the square.

Their wise have always taught
that kindness is a seed
which roots itself in thought
and blossoms in the deed.

This garden Earth will green,
(the deserts made by mind),
when man fills every scene
with care for every kind.

From broom to crown I sing
of those who strive to bear,
(in heart as well as ring),
the compass on the square.

My moon reflects their sun,
but not enough to grow,
or harvest by the ton,
the seed I need to sow.

That shoots of love may start,
I seek the Greater Light,
and call upon my heart
to rise and glow sun bright.

O let my heart strive-on
and gather in the ways,
to serve my crop of dawn,
with joy from Beauty's rays.

From broom to crown I sing
of those who strive to bear,
(in heart as well as ring),
the compass on the square
