Fire and Ice, by Robert Frost

Robert Frost

Fire and Ice
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 know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

(From Harper’s Magazine, December 1920.)

The LibriVox recording of Cori Samuel’s reading of the poem:

  1. Verry Complocated but understndable

  2. I have always enjoyed this poem….simply for the play between these two destructive forces.
