Teaser Tuesday (July 6)

What is Teaser Tuesday?
It's a meme hosted by Should Be Reading and here are the rules:Grab your current read...
Open to a random page
Share two teaser sentences from somewhere on the page
Don't include spoilers

I've been reading some poetry lately, and instead of posting a teaser from the current YA novel I'm reading, I thought's I'd post one of the poems.

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

It's one of his most popular poems, and was inspired by Dante's Inferno.

I almost posted a poem as a teaser this week. Instead I chose a teaser from Golden Conspiracy.

Other than at school I was first introduced to Frost in a book by Madeleine L'Engle - Arm of the Starfish - I think.

But yield who will to their separation
My object in living is to unite
My avocation and vocation
As my two eyes make one in sight.
Only where love and need are one,
And the work is play for mortal stakes,
Is the deed ever really done
For Heaven and the future's sakes.

-- Robert Frost, Two Tramps in Mud Time

I must have read it 30 years ago and can still recite it.

My teaser is from Blood Song by Cat Adams.
