“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”
The above was typed from memory, so it might not be perfect; however, this is obviously Fire and Ice by Robert Frost, one of my favorite poets who, due to the occasion, is sitting on my desk (in the form of a printed picture). Why? Cause it’s take your poet to work day, folks. Even if you didn’t know it, print out a picture of your favorite prose master, and tape it to your desk for the day!
Anywho, in honor of it, I posted my favorite poem from Robert Frost above, and I highly recommend at least lookin up your favorite poem, and giving it a good read outloud. Hell, make up an excuse to belt out some lines at the water cooler. Anything to enjoy the spirit of the day 🙂
Feel free to post your poet of choice and your favorite poem below! I’d love to see what everyone’s poem of choice is!
