The Spirit of Old Indian

20 08 2012

We are now on the final post of the Old Indian series. While I worked at camp we participated in a tradition that started in the earliest days of the camp and will be continued for many years to come. I’ll close this series the only way the feels right, with “Scout Vespers.”

Softly falls the light of day,
As our campfire fades away.

Silently each Scout should ask,
“Have I done my daily task?

Have I kept my honor bright?
Can I guiltless sleep tonight?

Have I done and have I dared,
Everything to Be Prepared?”


This post is dedicated to a great Scouter and a friend, Dale F Moseley. You will always be missed and remembered fondly. You embodied the Scout Oath and Law and were an inspiration for all those you served.

May the great Scoutmaster of all Scouts be with us until we meet again.

I was a girl scout for many years. My mother led both my scout troop as well as my brother’s boy scout pack. I love these words and how you put them together with the images.

As the mom of a Boy Scout, this is a precious memorial of a post.
