Fire and Ice

FIRE AND ICE Robert Frost

She is the ice
to your flame
Can you melt her heart
or will yours freeze
and kill the spark?

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

  1. That is the question, indeed. Though I think love does have the power to melt hearts……

  3. I wonder too…. and sometimes I wonder if the best thing is always to melt that ice, guess it depends on the fire.

    Excellent question and point — that love’s a crapshoot when pairing extremes. It makes perfect fits the stuff of Disney.

    You can soften ice without destroying it. You can warm it just enough so that you can lick its curves without hurting your tongue, but not force it to entirely lose its shape. I personally think that’s the way to go. After all, ice is ice for a reason.
