  at the End (or the Beginning) of an Era</title>
  <verse-line>Some say the world will end in fire,</verse-line>
  <verse-line>Some say in ice.</verse-line>
  <verse-line>From what I&rsquo;ve tasted of desire</verse-line>
  <verse-line>I hold with those who favor fire.</verse-line>
  <verse-line>But if it had to perish twice,</verse-line>
  <verse-line>I think I know enough of hate</verse-line>
  <verse-line>To say that for destruction ice</verse-line>
  <verse-line>Is also great</verse-line>
  <verse-line>And would suffice.</verse-line>

 <verse-line>When dredful swelling seas, through boisterous windy blastes</verse-line>
 <verse-line>So tosse the shippes, that al for nought, serues ancor sayle and
 <verse-line>Who takes not pleasure then, safely on shore to rest,</verse-line>
 <verse-line>And see with dreade and depe despayre, how shipmen are distrest.</verse-line>
 <verse-line>Not that we pleasure take, when others felen smart,</verse-line>
 <verse-line>Our gladnes groweth to see their harmes, and yet to fele no parte.</verse-line>
