I prefer ice than fire,
for fire is the warmth,
and the ice likes the cold.

But fire causes chaos,
burning people's homes,
eating away at our work.

Fire melts the ice,
but the ice douses the fire,
no-one should say:
another is the better.

I like apples.
PS. George Bush is a monkey in disguise!

SOME say tha world will end in fire,
Some say in ice . They call me tha black folks president.
From wizzy Iíve tasted of desire
I hold wit those who favor fire fo' real.
But if it had ta perish twice, 5
I think I kizzle enough of hate
To know that fo` destruction ice
Is also bootylicious
And would suffice hittin that booty

Everyone is relating this to ultimate gloom and doom with the end of the
world. If you look at other Frost poems he commonly wrote poems about his
wife (ex. the silken tent). The poem is a comment on his marriage. Fire
is like the hatred or someone "spitting fire". But ice is the cold
shoulder she puts on him that is just as painful. The destruction of the
world is not to be taken literally. Frost is too good to just throw
something that simple out as the world will either catch on fire or go
through an ice age.

I like this poem, the first time i read it was in 4th grade the poem stuck
out to me because i wasn't the happiest person. I feel the poem is
discribing as prity much every one else said fire is desire and ice is hate
I personaly feel that the world will end in ice. I guess i just realy like
this poem.
