Firewood Poem - Campfires
 

Ash Burns Best of all Firewood
As anyone who has had a bad experience with smoke and sparks can tell you, the first step to a good fire is the use of proper firewood. The following poem is helpful in determining the burning qualities of wood:
 

Beech wood fires are bright and clear,
If the logs are kept a year.
Chestnut's only good, they say,
If for long its laid away.
Birch and fir logs burn too fast,
Blaze up bright and do not last.
Elm wood burns like a churchyard mold,
Even the very flames are cold.
Poplar gives a bitter smoke,
Fills your eyes and makes you choke.
Apple wood will scent your room
With an incense like perfume.
Oak and maple, if dry and old,
Keep away the winter cold.
But ash wood wet and ash wood dry,
A king shall warm his slippers by.
