maid Jaswedo. Each one knelt before her candle In her hand a lighted taper, Touched it to the candle, saying, Work and Health and Love are lighted With the magic word Wo-he-lo.
Stood outside the camp a maiden To become one of our number, Stood before the guardian saying Earnest words of her desire To become a Camp Fire maiden. Then, replied the guardian to her After all her words were spoken, You are now one of our number Camps of Sagamore and Mystic. Then bestowed upon their members Twelve in number well-won honors So, unto each necklace adding, Precious beads of many colors, Six unto the Camp of Sagamore, Six unto the Camp of Mystic. Then, into the Wood-gatherers' circle There were gathered nine new members, Four from Mystic, Five from Sagamore. On each hand was placed a token Silver ring of seven fagots and the circles of Wo-he-lo.
Then our closing song together Sang we all the Day is Over.
And unto their homes departed All the loyal Camp Fire maidens.
