The Festive Board

E. L. Hannam

Brethren stand to await the call,

From the D.C. at the door,

Brethren receive your Worshipful Master

As he escorts him across the floor.

The Master sounds his gavel, as

All stand behind their chairs.

Pray silence for the Chaplain,

Who will lead us all in prayers.

The Brethren then are seated,

Their wine glassed to the brim.

The I.P.M. performs his task,

At the toast list he begins.

As he sounds the worthy gavel

The Master will then rise

Brother Wardens, now report your charge

With their gavels they reply.

Fully charged in the West, Worshipful Master

From the Senior warden's chair

Fully charged in the South, Worshipful Master

Under the Junior Warden's care.

The toast list then is followed

Along with flowing wine

Plus that special toast across the world,

To Absent Brethren at the stroke of nine.

At this point a special poem,

From IMPS can now be read

These said words from Rudyard Kipling,

To assist their daily bread
