Is Love Waiting?


I look at the magpie atop the waving fir tree

Lit by early sun and a sky cloud free

The month is June, the day is three

And I wonder, 'Is love waiting for me?'

  5. You need two magpies, Lesley!

    "One for sorrow, two for joy, three for a letter, four for a boy. five for silver, six for gold, seven for a secret, never to be told!

    But I really hope one magpie brings you all you wish for!

    And I love the poem!

  6. Thanks Gilly! Yes, I know, but I always say 'one for joy' and if there are two then it's 'two for joy' - result, a win win situation. x

  7. I have got the rhyme all mixed up with the TV show Magpie, maybe you are too young to remember that? They had one for sorrow, two for joy, three for a girl and four for a boy, so I guess you are in with a chance!
