 the gypsy poet

brownsea island boys

   took a trip to brownsea island
      just a ride out from Poole bay
      where baden Powell created
      the scouts movement one fine day

      with just 10 public school boys
      plus ten boys from Poole town
      he led the first scout camp
      at a cost of less than half a crown

      on brownsea was a hermit
      in the 7th century
      he lit fires to warn boats of danger
      perils on the sea

      now in august this year we all celebrate
      the scouts 100th year anniversary
      took a trip to brownsea island
      to see the pheasants on display
      the red squirrels running freely
      the cockells in the bay

      the sandbanks at Poole quayside
      see all the grockells here to stay
      the boats are in Poole harbor
      on such a lovely summers day
      see the camps all on the island
      the zunners all at play
