The warmth of a masonry stove

Of all the cool tricks in a mason’s own trove
are none quite so warm as a masonry stove.
The flame paths turn and tortuously twist
extending its length so its heat isn’t missed.
by warming the rock and the stone and the brick
and sinking its warmth into stove walls so thick
it gives off something to warm your cold feet:
a deep penetrating radiant heat.
This warmth will go from your feet to your head
as you smell those loaves of freshly baked bread.
