A divination rhyme, used to decide upon one of two courses of action: Slightly moisten two scraps of paper, place them on the back of the hand, and pronounce the following invocation before and after breathing on them to see which will fly first:

There were two blackbirds sat upon a hill,

The one named K’eak, the other named Gill.

Fly away K’eak! Fly away Gill!

Come again K’eak! Come again Gill!

(This rhyme can also be used to accompany simple prestidigitation: affix the two papers to the tips of the middle fingers and extend them, with the other fingers curled under. Then quickly pull away the hands and replace them with only the index fingers extended; then repeat again, with only the middle fingers extended: the papers will seem to disappear and reappear from the tips of the fingers.)

Rooks are good omens for castles (and other stone buildings), as they are the Mason’s bird. Crows and Ravens presage death, as the Mason (Cailleach or K’eak) comes at the end of the Year and oversees the death of the two Luminaries, Solar Creator and Lunar Sage.

Inverse Chant:

For the Sage’s Feast of Aurael, sweet Philhipae gave to me, ten Owls a-Winging, nine Swallows Swooping, eight Cranes a-Leaping, seven Hawks a-soaring, six Petrels piping, five Greylag Geese, four cawing Crows, three Bold Blue Jays, Two Teal Ducks, and a Partridge in a Pear Tree.
