Beechwood fires are bright and clear, If the logs are kept a year. Oaken logs burn steadily, If the wood is old and dry. Chestnuts only good they say, If for long its laid away. Bur 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 but do not last. Make a fire of elder tree, Death within your house you’ll see. It is by the Irish said, Hawthorn makes the sweetest bread. But ash green or ash brown, Is fit for a queen with a golden crown.
Elwood burns like churchyard mould, Even the very flames are cold. Poplar gives you bitter smoke, Fills your eyes and makes you choke. Applewood will scent your room, With an incense like perfume. But ash wet or ash dry, For a queen to warm her slippers by.
