Fire And Ice

Over the course of many years, on the walls of toilets in several of my homes, I scrawled these lines of Frost's:


Some say the world will end in fire,

Some say, in ice.

From what I've tasted of desire,

I hold with those who favour 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.

Amber, It makes me laugh when you say, "the younger generation"....My kids are most of them around your age.....You ARE the younger generation. :) hugs, gryf...I'm going to have to start reading poetry again---thanks for reminding me. hugs, gryf

Robert Frost on Myspace? I'm not sure how he'd have felt about that, PW! But it is great to read that the younger generation also appreciates his work.
