House Logs

A recent delivery to Hythe, Kent.

An educational poem to get you in the mood for a lovely fire:

Beechwood fires are bright and clear if the logs are kept a year.
Chestnut's only good, they say, if for long it's laid away.
Make a fire of elder tree, death within your house shall be.
But ash new or ash old is fit for a queen with a crown of gold.

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.
Elm wood burns like a church yard mould; e'en the very flames are cold.
But ash green or ash brown is fit for a queen with a golden grown.

Poplar gives a bitter smoke, fills your eyes and makes you choke.
Apple wood will scent your room with an incense-like perfume.
Oaken logs, if dry and old, keep away the winter cold.
But ash wet or ash dry a king shall warm his slippers by.
