On the Woodpile...

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.

~Robert Frost

Does a photo of a woodpile encased in ice count as both fire and ice??

I love Robert Frost. How appropriate to tie a wood pile that gives fire with the ice serving as a blanket to the wood -- fits the name of the poem well -- barbara
