Fire and Ice-2

Fire and Ice

‘One hundred years of solitude’
What a way to begin  it with
Its hero facing  fire,  to recall
The day he first  saw ice.

One  school of logic queer goes thus:
‘Smoke comes out of fire. From mountains
Comes smoke. So, mountains, even
snow capped, should contain fire.’

Fire and ice are that way linked
To literature and logic.
Would I be wrong to think :
If literature  is fire, logic is ice.
