April is Poetry Month…

and since it is poetry month Kim and I thought that we should do a post with poetry in it but trying to find poems in our genre is slightly hard, so the poem I chose today is a classic by a classic poet and has a Twilight connection so we deemed it appropriate.

Fire and Ice by Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,

Some say in ice.

From what I have 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.

Robert Lee Frost

March 26, 1874 – January 29, 1963

He was an American poet, whose work mainly centered on rural life.  Frost has received four Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry in his lifetime and his poetry is often quoted.  He never graduated college himself but received over 40 honorary degrees from distinguished colleges and universities including Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge and Dartmouth.  He spoke and recited poetry at the inauguration of President Kennedy at the age of 86.  He died two years later from surgical complications.  (source:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Frost)
