ppl u have to read the words and understand the meaning. if u rather have
the world end in fire then it would end in desire just like it said. but
if you want the world to end in ice the its hatred that would end it.

This matters not how horrendouse this poem is, it might be short but it is
still a great poem.

I believe that this poem should be taken very seriously, since
contains the clue to the location of the hidden gold within the secret
Nazi moonbase. But beware the gold is guarded by hillfolk, armed with
blunderbusses and whipped toppings. It is common knowledge that the
Nazi-Communist-Anarcho-Syndicalist-Hooligan-Grand National Symphony
Orchesta Party is behind such evils as Disney on Ice and the Shakesperean
play Othello. Beware the Nazi soldiers, mounted upon steeds of musk oxen,
travelling the remote plains of Chef Boyardee. If you are stopped simply
act flaccid like Flynn and become like a spongey foam. Remember not to let
cheese scout release their spores of kitty litter to smite thee. Thou shalt
prevail with the finding of the sacred froot loop of destiny located in the
bowels of a tuna factory

- Tom Supertom Infotrac Business Edition 7.8, leader of the Nazi Communist
Tribal Council and enemy of all caterwauls and jabberwockies

I too am using this poem as the basis for an english project and everyones
comments have been helpful. It's amazing that one poem with only ten lines
can have so many diffrent interpretations and get people to react so
strongly. As for my personal opinion I think Frost is trying to convey how
he thinks the destruction of a thing (the world, a soul, a relationship)
would end in fire (rage, passion, hate what have you)and if that thing got
a second chance how it would end in ice (indifference, non-caring,
coldness) but that it would still end. Thanks again for eveyones help and

I believe this poem symbolizes the efforts of our fine fire and rescue
academy. The fire, is in itself, fire, and the ice is representing water
and/or fire exstinguishers. Robert states that he would rather be with thee
who favours fire which is the Iraqi and Muslim nations who are trying to
destroy the world. In a sense, we are the ice, our military services are
the exstinguishers. They are like a clothy drape, draping over the
terrorism. The reason our military is needed, our great loin cloth of
justice, is because the generic turbans of the Muslim nations are not great
enough to smite thy hindering flame.

could you please stop leaving unnecassary commenting on the threads, you
are spamming the boards, and i will see that you are convicted.

Hey Moog
Hi this poem is one of the greatest poems i have ever read, this poem has
been kept in the bosnian archives in the yao ming dynasty. Until Joseph
Stalin and his neo confederation of comunist rebels snatched it from the
moors. A few words that decribe robert frost would be moot and iago. On my
travels throught the adirondacks i encountered pac-man and shared his poem
with chinny woo and the carney folk from montpeiler. One day three mexican
bandit were walking down 302 and i asked them if they had any brussel
sprouts and they replied in sheer obscinity undale undale then a herd of
ravid musk oxen and swept them of thier feet to impending death. By the
time i reached munich i found a basket full of bked ham .

thank you
