GUEST,Peter Laban rhymes for counting Magpies (58* d) RE: rhymes for counting Magpies 22 Sep 19


Fiddler Tommy Peoples, in his book From Time to Time gives the following in the notes to his composition 'Two for joy' (a reel):

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
Eight for diamonds, nine for love
Ten for a mystery from above.
