Logs to Burn …….. Country wisdom about winter fuel

Logs to burn, logs to burn,
Logs to save the coal a turn,
Here's a word to make you wise,
When you hear the woodman's cries.
Never heed his usual tale, That he has good logs for sale,
But read these lines and really learn,
The proper kind of logs to burn.
OAK logs will warm you well, if they're old and dry,
LARCH logs of pine wood smell, But the sparks will fly.
BEECH logs for Christmas time,
YEW logs heat well.
SCOTCH logs it is a crime, for anyone to sell.
