Thanks for popping in.
I looked across, and what did I see?
A family of magpies staring back at me.
So majestic, beautiful, bold and haughty!
It was clear from their pose they were cheeky – no – naughty!
But see one alone, and I stop as do you,
and starting searching the trees for his mate number two.
Because one is for Sorrow,
Two is 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 a wish
Nine for a kiss
Ten for a time of joyful bliss…
We have magpies everywhere at Clarity.
We even have three Magpie stencils.
Ask me if I like Magpies….
Mel Heaton, an dear old buddy of mine from Create & Craft, also like magpies. I shall never forget sitting with her years ago having supper at the Peterborough services, and she told me about the two magpies in her garden. I wonder if they’re still there….
Love & hugs,
