Scout Poem

Me? A Scout

By Robert E. Besecker

Me? A Scout?
That's what I want to be.
A shirt of orange, a Tiger Cub,
Just Mom and Dad and me.

Me? A Scout?
I'm a 2nd grader now.
I'll work real hard to be a Wolf,
If you'll just show me how.

Cub Scouting's fun! I'm now a Bear.
A pocketknife to show!
Time to make my pinewood car,
Dad'll help, I know.

Me? A Scout? A Webelos Scout,
And all my best friends too!
Learning 'bout so many things,
And so many things to do.

Now it's time to cross the bridge,
It should be quite a night.
It's really hard for me to think,
Me? The Arrow of Light!

Me? A Scout? A Boy Scout.
So many skills to learn.
Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class,
So many ranks to earn.

I'll work real hard through Star and Life,
and work in Cheerful Service too.
Seems so long since I was Cubbing,
When everything was new.

Me? A Scout? An Eagle Scout!
I'm surely flyin' high.
A Scout is what I'll always be,
The Spirit shall not die.

    Trying to find an old scout Poem!!

    Youv'e all heard of thunder and Lightnin'
    Of dewdrops and rainfall and Snow,
    S'pect youv'e all often wondered in't Winter
    Where flies and bluebotles go.

    Concerning these things above mention
    I should now like to tell you a tale
    That will start little tenderfoot's screamin'
    and turn some Comissioners pale.

    It 'appened in year 1950
    In a room where Boy Scouts get together
    A bright little lad called Fred Pancake
    Began to take interest in't Weather.

    He gazed at the clouds facinated
    and stood without hat in the rain.
    'Til Skipper was getting quite fearful
    lest' Fred should get water on't Brain


    i BELIEVE IT CAME FROM A BOYS OWN OR SCOUTING FOR BOYS ANNUAL WHICH I SAW IN THE 1950'S.
    Ex 13th Middlesbrough [Boys HighSchool] Scout - Dalesman

    knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter
    updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
