Fire And Ice - Poem 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 say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Form: Epigram

    Hey guys, Its your girl, Bela Swan/Cullen from Twilight Saga. I wanted to say that this is my favorite poem because Stephanie Meyers put this poem in the beginning of her book in Eclipse and in the movie.

    Bye,

    Some said the world should be in Perl;
    Some said in Lisp.
    Now, having given both a whirl,
    I held with those who favored Perl.
    But I fear we passed to men
    A disappointing founding myth,
    And should we write it all again,
    I'd end it with
    A close-paren.

    The world will not end, but man will be solely responsible for this disaster. Nothing but human hatred will be the sole cause of destruction. Neither fire nor ice will burn or freeze it, but jealousy, vengeance and rivalry may. Why do the prophets prophesize as such without knowing the things? Why do the soothsayers? What about the false predictions of the palmists and astrologers? How to say them? (Report) Reply
