Fire And Ice

By

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.

This poem represents the world. Fire, by definition means a combustion or burning, in which substances combine chemically with oxygen from the air and typically give out bright light, heat, and smoke. And Ice by definition means frozen water, a brittle, transparent crystalline solid. So, Robert Frost says in this poem that the world will either burn and everyone will fight each other, or the world will be cold and bitter, and no one will turn to help you and they will be rude. These are the things that the world struggles with and Robert Frost thinks that one of these things will end the world. Mainly he thinks fire will end the world because people do fight each other very often in the world we live in. But he also thinks the world may end in bitterness and inhospitably places. I have really connected personally to this poem because we live in a world today where people are either uninviting or they will kick you when you are already down for amusement. Thanks.
