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?'

  4. Karen, Jill and Cathy, thank you. The words came to me whilst eating an early breakfast in bed and looking at the view from the window!

  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!
