Country Log Ditty
logs – they will warm you well, if they’re old and
Larch logs of pinewood smell, but the sparks will fly.
Beech logs for Christmas time, Yew logs – all heat well,
Scotch logs it is a crime for anyone to sell.
Birch logs will burn too fast, Chestnuts scarce at all,
Hawthorn logs are good to last if cut in the fall,
Holly logs will burn like wax – always burn them green,
Elm logs burn like smoldering flax – no flame to be seen.
Pear logs and Apple logs, they will scent your room,
Cherry logs placed o’er the dogs smell like flowers in bloom.
But Ash logs that are smooth and grey, burn them green or old.
Buy all you can that come your way – they’re worth
their weight in gold.
