Holy Miss Lilly,
what a difference Walnut oil makes.
Its like she came alive today,
at least that is half way,
for you see the difference oil can make
in just a single day.
It lets the light
pass deep within
the pores and cells God grew.
Then with that bit of helping hand
the beauty does shine through.
In fact I dare say none can beat
the grains Sweet God did grow,
when he brought that tree to life
that lived for centuries you know.
The lines of growth that give it strength
are dark and tightly spaced.
The give it more than modern wood
Could muster any day.
In fact there’s no comparison
for strength, for looks, for life,
than Long Leaf Pine from Virgin woods
that give us this delight.
So please remember when you build
that salvage wood is best.
Please help to save the planet
with the wood that’s passed the test.
It has survived for centuries,
not simply 30 years
that it takes to grow a new tree
after older growth was cleared.
Preserve, protect, and pass along,
a world made for kids
to inherit with enough still left,
to have a home like this.
