Water or Ice?

According to American poet Robert Frost, the world will end either by fire or ice. Personally, I'm not sure which one will rule the day, but I thought of that poem when I viewed this close-up image of the water at the top of the fountain in the Clarendon Market Common shopping area today. Doesn't the water look frozen or like ice? I struggle with finding the right shutter speeds to photograph running water. While this setting was not perfect, I do enjoy the created effect in this composition. It looks as though an iceberg appears at the top of this fountain.

Robert Frost is one of my favorite poets and if you aren't familiar with "Fire and Ice," I've included the full text below for your enjoyment.
"Fire and Ice"
by 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.
