Watch as wood stacked on paper sees the flame
Look now the flame wraps logs with golden light.
Light spreads, and we focus on that small frame
As if the campfire consumed our whole night.
Breathe deeply and we inhale the wood smokes.
Soft scent of char and darkened wood and burn.
Contrasts with acrid pine sap which invokes
Soap scents. Sweet smells. Yet they’re not out of turn.
Smells sweet enough to taste … chocolate dark
Marshmallow melting makes caramel char
And crackers honeyed, a sugared wood-bark.
Combine these tastes and they’ll call you a star.
Smell S’mores and taste your gooey campfire treat
All kids know, there’s nothing better to eat.
