Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. Leonard Cohen

Thought For Today

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 know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Robert Frost's name slipped by me, and at first I thought, "Wow, this sounds really familiar."
