The Sunday Posts 2012



Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favour 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.

'Fire and Ice'
By Robert Frost.

Thanks for this, Alistair. Fire or ice sound pretty good compared to the alternatives; man-made synthetic pathogens, anyone?

Alistair said...

I agree - this sound like a much better option too. {if I had to choose}

Beautiful words, very simple as well. And a beautiful image to match.

Nice poem - I reckon it'll be some wee pesky virus, that can survive both heat and cold, that'll do it though! :)
