Question: Tell me about “One For Sorrow”
The idea for One For Sorrow, came from an old English folklore song that people recite when they see a magpie. Magpies are thought to be omens and the rhyme is said to predict your fate if you see a particular number of magpies in one sighting.
One for sorrow, two for mirth,
Three for a wedding, four for a birth,
Five for silver, six for gold,
Seven for a secret not to be told.
Eight for heaven, nine for hell,
And ten for the devil’s own sel’.
