TELL ME WHY

Tell me why the stars do shine,
Tell me why the ivy twines,
Tell me why the sky's so blue,
Tell me Onteora, just why I love you.
 
Because God made the stars to shine,
Because God made the ivy twine,
Because God made the sky so blue,
That's why Onteora, that's why I love you.


"The Lessons of Onteora"
by John Wenk

Compassion
Joy
Beauty
Growth
Wisdom and
Love
 
I have seen
felt
heard and
experienced
all of these things in
 
the passing of a tradition
the tom foolery of two friends
the lake at dusk
the effect of camp on a scout
the preservation of the environment
the special spirit of the staff
 
and in all of these things and
in all of the memories from Onteora
 
I have felt God.


ODE TO UTE

Little Ute campsite in the woods
10 platforms in the campsite stood
saw the staffmen walking by,
humping 10 more in.
 
Lift me! Lift me! Lift me!
the platform said
if we see Dan we'll kill him dead
come all you staffmen come with me happy we will always be!
