The Cripple’s Dream

By W. S. Brown, 1924

 

I ‘woke up the other night
And there in front of my dim light
I saw God, taking a little peep
At my crooked legs and I couldn’t sleep.

 

 
So, I pulled the clothes up over my head,
And asked God to take me when I was dead.
Still I wondered what He would do with me
For I am a cripple, as you can see.
 
 
The I went to sleep, praying to Him,
And I dreamed I saw a Shriner come in.
He picked me up and took me away,
Saying he’d fix my legs so I could run and play.
 
 
Then I slept on until morning came,
And I looked at my legs which were just the same,
And I thought of what God said to men –
To tell little children to come to him.
 
 
Just then my crippled pal crawled in
And gently chucked me under the chin,
And yelled out loud without any fear,
The Shriner men are coming here.
 
 

Then I ‘woke up and looked out to see,
And there were the Shriners coming for me.
So, thank you, God, for my dream coming true,
And thank you, every Shriner, too.
