Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I 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

That last one is particularly breathtaking!

The last one is more breathtaking when you realize that whoever took it got covered with the muck. That is really not a good thing to be standing in front of one of these as sometimes the mud doesn't mix and you get hit with chunks.
