The Firewood Poem

Beechwood fires are bright and clear 
If the logs are kept a year 
Chestnut only good they say 
If for long it's laid away 
Make a fire of Elder tree 
Death within your house will be 
But Ashwood green and Ashwood brown 
Are fit for a Queen with a golden crown

Birch and Fir logs burn too fast 
Blaze up bright and do not last 
It is by the Irish said 
Hawthorn bakes the sweetest bread 
Elmwood burns like churchyard mould 
Even the very flames are cold 
But Ashwood green and Ashwood brown 
Are fit for a Queen with a golden crown

Poplar gives a bitter smoke 
Fills your eyes and makes you choke 
Apple wood will scent your room 
Pear wood smells like flowers in bloom 
Oaken logs, if dry and old 
Keep away the winters cold 
But Ashwood wet or Ashwood dry 
A King shall warm his slippers by. 

 

The Firewood Ryme

Logs to Burn, Logs to burn, Logs to burn, 
Logs to save the coal a turn, 
Here's a word to make you wise, 
When you hear the woodman's cries. 

Never heed his usual tale, 
That he has good logs for sale, 
But read these lines and really learn, 
The proper kind of logs to burn. 

Oak logs will warm you well, 
If they're old and dry, 
Larch logs of pine will smell, 
But the sparks will fly. 

Beech logs for Christmas time, 
Yew logs heat well, 
"Scotch" logs it is a crime, 
For anyone to sell. 

Birch logs will burn too fast, 
Chestnut scarce at all, 
Hawthorn logs are good to last, 
If you cut them in the fall. 

Holly logs will burn like wax, 
You should burn them green, 
Elm logs like smouldering flax, 
No flame to be seen. 

Pear logs and Apple logs, 
They will scent your room, 
Cherry logs across the dogs, 
Smell like flowers in bloom. 

But Ash logs, all smooth and grey, 
Burn them green or old; 
Buy up all that come your way, 
They're worth their weight in gold.
