The Blue Angels

Dedicated to the Eight Daisy Girl Scouts

of Sandy Hook Elementary

 

As they entered into heaven,

It was a most unusual sight,

Eight of God’s littlest angels,

All wearing blue, not the standard white.

 

Others murmured as they arrived,

“What gives them the merit

To change the traditional color,

The heavenly hosts won’t bear it.”

 

The tiny eight blue angels

Resounded as a chorus:

“We are part of another group

Who’ve already gone before us . . .

 

Have you noticed other colorful angels,

Dressed in green, not blue,

We’ve come to join our sisters,

The many here among you.

 

You see, we never had the chance

To wear the Girl Scout green,

Our lives ended quite abruptly,

Something entirely unforeseen.

 

But we were definitely true Girl Scouts,

In all we would say and do,

We followed the Girl Scout Law,

And we kept the Promise, too.

 

So if our wearing these blue robes

Makes heaven a little crazy,

Remember, there is nothing more divine,

Than an angelic Girl Scout Daisy.”
