Magpies: Six & Seven

So, I've arrived at the end of my seven magpies. But I'm having so much fun and loving this series, that I want to do more! Extended versions of the rhyme are more rare, and you don't usually hear past 7. So now I'm trying to decide which of these to go with:

Eight for heaven, nine for hell,
And ten for the devil's own sel'.


eight for a wish,
nine for a kiss,
ten for a time

of joyous bliss.

Very different imagery to go with one or the other.

The entire series can be found here:
