Fire and Ice / Robert Frost

Fire and Ice

Robert Frost


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.

אש וקרח / רוברט פרוסט


יֵשׁ טוֹעֲנִים: תֵּבֵל תִּכְלֶה בָּאֵשׁ,

יֵשׁ טוֹעֲנִים: בְּקֶרַח.

אֲנִי, שֶׁטַעַם עֲגָבִים בְּפִי, לא אֶתְבַּיֵּשׁ

לִהְיוֹת בֵּין אוֹהֲדֵי הָאֵשׁ.

אַךְ אִם שׁוּב יַעֲבֹר עָלֶיהָ כֶּלַח,

הֲרֵי שֶׁכְּבָר רָאִיתִי דֵּי שִׂנְאָה וָאֶרֶס

כְּדי לִקְבּעַ שֶׁגַּם קֶרַח

בְּלִי שׁוּם הִסּוּס

יָבִיא שׁוֹאָה וָהֶרֶס.


תרגום: זיוה שמיר
