Magpies Of Troy

One for sorrow,
Every day, another foolish ploy
I already know about tomorrow

Two for joy,
A shining necklace of pearls
We are women of Troy

Three for a girl,
Who is set to destroy
In an ocean swirl

Four for a boy,
Who lives by the river
Fancying us together an alloy

Five for silver,
A sad story it has so far told
Now without sturdy pillar

Six for gold,
Though it comes with undiscovered threats
I thought I was so bold

Seven for a secret,
Never to be told.
Until I’m down among the fishes
Now I’m grey and cold

Eight for a wish,
Always, never, to be missed
All thoughts of me, I fear banished

Nine for a kiss,
Because we never saw the foreward
Of the current bliss

Ten for a bird,
You must not miss
