Fire & Ice


Recommended Posts

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 know that for destruction ice

Is also great

And would suffice

Back in college days a prof suggested that freezing to death may be the most pleasant way to go -- as your blood retreats from the cold you feel that you are getting toasty warm again, and sleepy.


Now you got me wondering if Robert Frost ever read William Service's The Cremation of Sam McGee. You got both of Frost's idea in there -- fire and ice.
