"Fire and Ice", by Robert Lee Frost

This week’s poem is by Robert Lee Frost. To know this giant literary figure of Modern American Poetry, it is recommended to start with this:

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
.
