BRIDGING POEM

 

From Daisy Girl Scouts dressed in blue

When everything is fresh and new.

We learn our Promise and our Law

And we grow strong as we grow tall

 

As Brownie Girl Scouts eager to learn,

We try new things and Try-its earn.

We make the world a better place

With a big Brownie Smile on our face.

 

Into Junior Girl Scouts we venture on,

Exploring our backyard and beyond.

In a circle or friendship, hand in hand

Helping people all that we can

 

Girl Scouts 11-17 have lots to achieve,

There is much to do with Studio 2B

They can earn their Silver and their Gold

While they make new friends and keep the old.

 

Little girls into women grow,

Sharing with others all that they know.

Adult Girl Scouts are there to lead

And lend a hand where there’s a need.

 

From level to level, step by step

Being a Girl Scout has been life’s prep

We meet the challenge each level brings

Then we are on to bigger things.

o      Song: God Bless America

God Bless America, Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.

From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam;
God bless America, My home sweet home.

God bless America, My home sweet home.

 

o      Song: Day is Done

Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh. 

 

o      Song: Make New Friends

Make new friends,
but keep the old.

One is silver and the other gold

A circle is round

It has no end

That’s how long I want

To be your friend

You have a friend

I have another

Put them together

And we have each other. 

 

 

·      Daisy Song and Poem

o      I’m a Daisy Song

I'm a Daisy, Daisy Girl Scout

And I'll tell you something true

I'm a loyal little girl scout

And my color is true blue

 

o      Daisy Leaders Poem

Stepping stones are for the Daisies,

Cross them while you sing.

Your Daisy days are over now

Come join our Brownie Ring.

 

 

·      Brownies Song and Poem

o      Brownie Smile Song

I have something in my pocket.

It belongs across my face,

I keep it very close at hand in a most convenient place.

I’m sure you couldn’t guess it if you guessed a long, long while.

So I’ll take it out and put it on - It’s a great big Brownie Smile!

 

o      Brownie Leaders Poem

Juniors you’ll be for three short years.

Make the most of each day that goes by.

Be cheerful and helpful and do a good turn,

And greet each Girl Scout with a "Hi".

 

 

·      Juniors Poem

o      Junior Poem

When I was a young girl

I wore a dress of green,

I learned through helping others

What happiness can mean.

To follow in proud footsteps

Where other Cadettes have been,

Some exciting adventures

Now I'm ready to begin.

 

o      Junior Leaders Poem

Juniors, you are just about

To become Cadette Girl Scouts.

Before you flew with Brownie wings

To Junior Girl Scouts and bigger things

As a Cadette there's even more

Like challenges and more worlds to explore.

As you cross the bridge to Cadettes,

I challenge you to do your best,

To live your life without many flaws,

By living up to the Girl Scout Promise and Laws.
