fire and ice







Robert Frost is such a good name for a winter poet.

Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
Robert Frost

vibeke,
thank you. I like the poem because it seems not to take the end of the world too seriously. And I love the elements of fire and ice
