British magpie rhymes in Journey into Mystery #622

One for sorrow
Two for joy
Three for a girl
Four for a boy
Five for silver
Six for gold
Seven for a secret never to be told.

~

One for sorrow
Two for mirth
Three for a funeral
Four for a birth
Five for heaven
Six for hell
Seven’s the Devil his own self

I love how Mr. Gillen mixed two versions of the rhyme. There’s a lot of magpie folklore and symbolism poured into Ikol.
