Green Angel Poem

'Author Unknown'


Green Angel

I dreamed I went to Heaven
And saw among the dead,
An angel dressed in green
A halo 'round her head

And she looked kind of funny
'Midst all the gleaming white
The others asked her jealously
What gave her such a right?

I'm a Girl Scout leader,
And I lay no hold to fame
But being such a person
Means more than just a name.

My jobs on earth were many,
Praises and thanks were few.
I did more work in one day
Than ten people ought to do.

I was a tin can cooker,
A hiker, a path finder,
I've also been an artist
A sailor, a bookbinder.

I taught jumping Jills to dance,
I taught parents to sing,
I made saints out of hoodlums,
While mama had her fling.

I walked the streets till my feet
Felt like a ton of bricks,
Helping sell Girl Scout cookies
'Til the mere thought made me sick.

But still, it was a lot of fun,
Life never was a bore.
See... this role isn't new to me...
I've been an angel before.
