Magpie Thievery

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

Original Author Unknown


One for sorrow
Two for joy
He could only borrow
What he could destroy

Three for a girl
Four for a boy
She married an earl
Who mined in alloy

Five for silver
Six for gold
He was quick to pilfer
All that I could behold

Seven for a secret
Never to be told
Such as where on earth

Is all my gold?
