Apologies to you, Wayne and Mr. Longfellow - but your image brought this to mind.

Under the Spreading Chestnut Tree
The rusted Moffat stands
Though a mighty stove once it was,
The rusted strips, once oven's bands.
Filled with scents of dinners made
by loving, weathered hands.

And children coming home from school
Look in at the kitchen door
They love to see the heating stove,   
And mother they adore , 
And watch the flour from apron fly   
Like windblown chaff on threshing-floor.

Toiling,—baking,—borrowing,   
Onward through life she goes; 
Each morning sees new food begun,   
At evening sees the oven close;  
Family fed, all full, all done,  
Mother claims a night's repose.    

Thanks, thanks to thee, my worthy friend,   
For the lesson thou hast taught! 
Thus at the heating stove of life
Our fortunes must be wrought; 
Though its ovens no longer bake
Those loving deeds are not forgot

Thank you Russell.  Is this something you remembered or did you write it?

I wrote these words but it is based on what I remember of a much longer poem called the Blacksmith by Longfellow mixed with memories of my mom in our old kitchen when I was young. I would say its a homage/parody of HW Longfellow.

It is amazing... I think it is a scrub oak.

I don't know if the electric parts would work, but the wood portion would.  (I remember having a wood electric stove when I was a boy)

It seems competing in resistance with the tree. Beautiful image.

Rather poignantly mournful...  that stove was a hearth, the center of a family's life...
