can any one remember the rhyme about the magpies, the one that starts one for sorrow two for joy. I do hope so as it is driving me mad that I cant remember the rest. best wishes to all Tina

One for sorrow,
Two for joy,
Three for a girl,
Four for a boy,
Five for silver,
Six for gold,
Seven for a secret,
Never to be told

One for sorrow, two for joy,
Three for a girl and four for a boy,
Five for silver, six for gold,
Seven for a secret - never to be told.
