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.

~ Robert Frost


Or as Lucy goes around asking all of her friends
in one of my favorite Peanuts Cartoons:
"Shall I put you down for a HEADACHE or a STOMACHACHE?"

  1. Well, now that I look at it, I guess that Frost poem is more like Doom or Doom.

  2. Kyle Bowen writes: "Great choice Kitti - in this context, maybe the poem suggests that the dawn we desire represents an end for "some" while destruction by ice is a certain doom stemming from "hate" or a frozen state of change? In other words, dawn is doom for those without the desire to change."

  3. Charlie Brown: "I keep having these tiny self doubts . . .
    do you think this is wrong?"

    Lucy: "Of course it's wrong, Charlie Brown . . . "
