Robert Frost - Fire and Ice

Best known for "The Road Not Taken," often recited at graduations and commencements, Robert Frost is recognized as a great American poet for his depictions of rural life and colloquial speech. During his lifetime, he won 4 Pulitzer Prizes for poetry.

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.
