Elements of Poetry

Let´s start by a simple poem (Robert Frost´s Fire and Ice)

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 say that for destruction ice

Is also great

And would suffice.
