Thread Name: rhymes for counting Magpies
Subject: RE: BS: Magpies
I knew the one for sorrow, two for joy and the one for sorrow version to ten, and the one for sorrow,two for mirth version to seven but not any more. varients are wonderful things and I am fascinated by them. My college special study was done on varients on childrens playground singing games.
Today we were back to the usual 2-4 magpies in the field so maybe they were holding a birthday party yesterday! - and in answer to Clinton, I have! (a round dozen plus 2 tinies waiting to be big enough for their own human).
