Burning Quality of Wood

Oak logs will warm you well, that are old and dry
Logs of pine will sweetly smell, but the sparks do fly
Birch logs burn too fast, chestnut not at all
Hawthorn logs are good to last, cut them in the Fall
Holly logs will burn like wax, you may burn them green
Elm logs like to smouldering flax, no flame can be seen
Beech logs for winter time, yew logs as well
Green elder logs, it is a crime, ro any man to sell
Pear logs and apple logs, they will scent your room
Cherry logs across the dogs, smell like flowers of broom
Ash logs, smooth and grey, burn them green or old
Buy them all that come your way, worth their weight in gold.
