Logs To Burn

Logs To Burn

Oaken logs if dry and cold

Keep away the winter cold

Poplar gives a bitter smoke

Fills you eyes and makes you choke

Elmwood burns like graveyard mould

Even the very flames are cold

Apple wood will scent the room

Pear wood smells as flowers in bloom

But Ash wood wet and Ash wood dry

A King to warm his slippers by.

Beech wood fires burn bright and clear

If the logs are kept for a year

Chestnut's only good they say,

If for year 'Its stored away'

Birch and Fir woods burn too fast

Blaze too bright and do not last

But Ash wood green and Ash wood brown

Are fit for a queen with a golden crown.
