Thanksgiving, Gratitude, and Scouting: A Poem

As I think about Thanksgiving, gratitude, and Scouting, they all seem to go together.  So, I wrote a poem about it all and would like to share it with you.

I’m So Grateful I’m in Scouting

I’m so grateful I’m in Scouting,

growing, serving, so much to give.

Scouting brotherhood and outings,

Oh, what a life it’s been to live.

We earn our wolf badge, then the bear,

Then Webelos, Arrow of Light.

We get to go to day camp where,

We all have fun with all our might.

We started with the Cub Scouts,

and we all love the Blue and Gold.

Such fun in dens, and packs as Scouts,

When done with fam’lies young and old.

New Scout Patrol is next you see,

We start as Scouts then Tenderfeets.

Then Second, First Class Scouts we will be,

Star, Life, then Eagle Scout so sweet.

To be an Eagle Scout is best,

And that’s the goal that we all seek.

We climb the trail and pass each test,

along our way to Eagle’s peak.

As Scouts, we get to camp and hike,

The Scouts and leaders all are there.

We tromp thru snow, or ride our bike,

We hike the hills, camp everywhere.

We have grand times at camporees;

our weeks at summer camp are best.

If we’re lucky, to jamborees,

So much to do, no time to rest.

What can beat the smell of bacon,

as we’re camping on the trail.

And together we are making

the grub that we all love so well.

I’m so grateful I’m in Scouting,

growing, serving, so much to give.

Scouting brotherhood and outings,

Oh what a life it’s been to live.

At this special season, let’s all be grateful for our grand association with the Scouting Program.  It is a lot to be thankful for!
