Fire and Ice

A Poem by Robert Frost



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 (1874-1963) once said that poetry "makes you remember what you didn't know you knew."

         Published under the provision of U.S. Code, Title 17, section 107.
