Journey to Eagle

How fast the years in Scouting go
Our Tiger's just begun
He's doing crafts and playing games
He wants to be someone.

Five years have passed, in Webelos now
Our boy is tying knots.
He's bridging into Boy Scouts where
He'll help the younger tots.

He learned the Oath and learned the Law
A Scout, our boy aims high.
He's now on [use your name here]'s First Class Trail
Not getting much shut-eye!

Tenderfoot, then Second Class
Our Boy's becoming wise
Soon passing First Class Board of Review
A Star is in his eye.

Inspired by adults for years
He's climbing toward his goal
Badges earned at summer camps
He leads a great patrol!

Now project time is in full view
Ideas come to Life.
He's backpacking Scouting's Pinnacle:
Near Philmont's wildlife.

Guiding Scouts, his project's done
And badges are complete
Just one Review to show the Board
He's one of the elite.

Not long ago, a Tiger Cub
A boy when he began
He's loyal, trustworthy, and earned respect
Our boy is now a man.

In ten short years, his dream fulfilled
He's Someone, there's no doubt.
He's made the climb, we watch him soar
He's now an Eagle Scout.
