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.

"A Question" A voice said, Look me in the stars And tell me truly, men of earth, If all the soul-and-body scars Were not too much to pay for birth.
Вечеря на столі, пора до хати — Від праці відриваєш ти мене, Та мушу я цвіт яблунь поховати В скупій землі (це квіття запашне І ніжне, з ним помішана квасоля, У пелюстках — поморщений горох), А може, ти забудеш, нащо з поля Мене зовеш, і будем далі вдвох Землі весняної рабами. Гріє, Горить любов, допоки в ґрунт кладем Зерно, до часу, як земля стемніє Від бур'яну, і паросток ножем Проткнеться, й вигнуте тільце рослини Окрушини землі із себе скине. («Садячи», пер. Д. Павличка)
Quotes "In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: It goes on." "A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather and ask for it back when it begins to rain." “It's a funny thing that when a man hasn't anything on earth to worry about, he goes off and gets married.”
