Where does the good go

Short and sweet

Pearatty was supposed to do poetry Wednesday today. However, I think she’s trying to teach me a lesson about liking people even though they’re not perfect.

She clearly hasn’t read my tweet about what kind of student I am.

Anyway, in a pinch, I provide you with a little Robert Frost. This opens the new-to-DVD movie Twilight: Eclipse. And I love it. The poem, not the movie. NEVER watch that movie.

I think the answer is ice.

In my experience as long as there is fire: whether from passion or anger, there is feeling. Emotion. Life. When that dies out. There’s nothing. And that’s the end.

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.

    Could we please leave off any mention of cold, ice, or snow until, say, June 2011?

    And you totally freaked me out about loving Twilight for a moment. Thanks for the rush. Phew.

    If you write someone’s poem down does that count as poetry blogging?

    But . . . I said you were the Queen. How can that be rude?
