Fire and Ice
by Robert Frost

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.

Source: New Hampshire (1923) by Robert Frost.

Frost, Robert's last name, means something coincidentally -renqiulan- 给 renqiulan 发送悄悄话 renqiulan 的博客首页 (0 bytes) () 02/06/2024 postreply 07:50:40

close to ice. Back to the poem, it is his disavowal of -renqiulan- 给 renqiulan 发送悄悄话 renqiulan 的博客首页 (0 bytes) () 02/06/2024 postreply 07:54:34

Frost's fire and ice are symbols for human's emotions. -CBA7- 给 CBA7 发送悄悄话 CBA7 的博客首页 (0 bytes) () 02/06/2024 postreply 08:21:29

Like fire and ice, both can end the world. -CBA7- 给 CBA7 发送悄悄话 CBA7 的博客首页 (0 bytes) () 02/06/2024 postreply 08:27:08

A clue: Frost addressed those two emotions in the poem. -CBA7- 给 CBA7 发送悄悄话 CBA7 的博客首页 (0 bytes) () 02/06/2024 postreply 08:38:13

icy, white but not whitish. That's why she is so desired, so -蓝灵- 给 蓝灵 发送悄悄话 蓝灵 的博客首页 (0 bytes) () 02/06/2024 postreply 08:52:05

much so that she is catching fire, idiomatically speaking. -蓝灵- 给 蓝灵 发送悄悄话 蓝灵 的博客首页 (0 bytes) () 02/06/2024 postreply 08:53:55

谢谢盈盈分享读后感。这首诗虽然是在谈论世界如何终结,但作者是以一种比较幽默诙谐的语气写的,可能容易引起误解,例如这两句: -CBA7- 给 CBA7 发送悄悄话 CBA7 的博客首页 (0 bytes) () 02/07/2024 postreply 07:57:21
