Girl Scouting was my choice of roads to follow in my quest

For among the girls I found a love deeper than the rest."

"On earth Girl Scouting taught me to leave things better than before

And the same applies to that mortal place where life never was a bore.

Now having lived by that Girl Scouting rule in every earthly endeavor

I have become an Angel in green and shall be a Girl Scout forever."
