The Eagle Scout

A young man stands before us now,
smiling broadly as his honor is bestowed.
He stood before us once as Tenderfoot,
but now he is an "Eagle Scout".

"On my honor, I will do my best"
he promised from the start;
He said that he would obey the Law
that is known by every scout.

The Oath and Law become his creed,
his Motto "Be Prepared";
"Do a good turn daily"
was the Slogan to which he agreed.

With Slogan, Motto, the Oath and Law,
he traveled the "Eagle" trail;
a trail completed by just a few,
but an asset to those who do.

He learned to do whatever is right
no matter what others might think.
He learned to be proud, yet not aloof,
to respect all other men.

Who is this young man who before us stands
accepting his "Eagle" with pride?
He once was a Boy Scout with boyish ideals;
but now he is nearly a man.
