Robert Frost 1874-1963

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.

Hi Linera,

I'm glad you found this Frost poem. I've been trying to remember it.

I have enjoyed looking through your blog and found some things which interested me like the Charles Baxter essay.

Lovely to find this today.

Cheers,
Robin

What a wonderful poem, thank you!
On another note - I am coming to the Tin house workshop in July! Can I ask you a few Portland-related questions? My email is tania (at) taniahershman.com.

Thanks!

Tania
