Crows V

One crow sorrow,
Two crows joy,
Three for a girl,
Four for a boy,
Five for rich,
Six for poor,
Seven for a witch,
I can say no more.

That's me done, but here are a few different variations...

One crow sorrow,
Two crows mirth,
three, a wedding,
four, a birth,
five brings silver,
six takes wealth,
seven crows a secret,
More I can nae tell.

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'.

I think this crow fits rather well with the spirit of the last two lines. ;)

Definitely has that somewhat mischievous look.
