Fire and Ice

English 2 Honors

Fire and Ice

 

Some say the world will end in fire,

Some say in ice[JE1] .

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those who favor fire[JE2] .

But if it had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate

To say that for destruction ice[JE3] 

Is also great

And would suffice.

Poetry

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nature's first green is gold[JE4] 
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden
[JE5]  sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

 


 [JE1]Fire melts ice, so it wins.

 [JE2]Fire is a quicker and less planned way to die.

 [JE3]Ices is slower and worse way to go.

 [JE4]Alliteration give a smooth new feeling

 [JE5]Eden’s kids had children with their brothers and sisters.
