Famous quotes containing the words boy and/or scouts:

    To Him, the painted swallow,
    to Him, the lump of amber,
    to Him, the boy and girl
    with roses and love-knots,
    to Him, the little cat
    to play beneath the Manger....
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    it pleaseth me when I see through the meadows
    The tents and pavilions set up, and great joy have I
    When I see o’er the campana knights armed and horses arrayed.

    And it pleaseth me when the scouts set in flight the folk with
    their goods;
    And it pleaseth me when I see coming together after them an host of
    armed men.
    Bertrans De Born (fl. 12th century)
