Mason's line

If you’re laying blocks or bricks
in a straight-lined wall with mortar
there are a few quick mason’s tricks
to keep your blocks and bricks in order.

Rather than place blocks askew
you can line them up just fine
all you really have to do
is guide your bricks with mason’s line.


  1. This is a delight! I invite you to see my page this month, which also features bricks. I'm writing about the Albigensian Crusade, and the cathedral in Albi is said to be the largest brick building in the world. You are probably familiar with the extensive brick construction in that area. Thanks to NaPoWriMo for featuring your interesting work.

    1. Thanks for your kind comment, I enjoyed your site and your work, well done.

  2. Good poem! It reminded me of "Lay It On The Line" by Triumph. If anyone needs a masonry contractor in Greeley, CO we can help.
