Amazing Coincidences

A Rebeldes, cap a la meitat del llibre hi ha aquest poema de Robert Frost:


Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
Robert Frost (1923)

Ahir, començo Eclipse, i al segon full em trobo això:
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 know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
Robert Frost (1920)
És curiós que els dos llibres que més m'han marcat (no Eclipse sinó la saga completa) tinguin això en comú. I és que hi ha coincidencies que fan posar els pèls de punta.
