I too had an English assignment on this poem and Jonathan's point was also
helpful(thanx).Also, I think its interesting that he tastes desire whereas
he knows hate.

Fire and ice is my idea of the best poem he has ever wrote. The meaning is
very deep and shows many of the ideas and thoughts of the way the world may
end.it is very short but it has a great meaning.

Reflection by Kate
I really admire the poem Fire and Ice. I donít know if it is the thought
of the world ending, let alone in fire or ice, or me thinking that the
world will ever end
I wonder why the world is so full of hate. Why not love, care, and
friendship? The only way I can imagine the world ending would be from us
fighting, and hating. I wish that the world could keep on living forever,
and never perish.

Just want to thank alex, Poindexter and Jonothan. Another great poem on
this site if anybody wants to read one is called the rave. It's by Edgar
Allen Poe. and don't believe anybody who says it's very gothic. It's not.

this poem really does make you think... alot! i'm going to use it for a
english project... i think the class will be thinking as hard as i was.
personaly i thing the wrold will end in fire or said in the poem disire
the reason for my thinking this is because the world has so many people who
are so sick that they all are so power hungry that they will end up killing
the world and hten themselves! and when they do i want to be long gone!

I love this poem its my favourite one. When reading this it makes you think
how our world will end and its also makes you ask the questions of life.

It's interesting. My dog pointed out to me that fire can melt ice, melted
ice becomes water, and water can put fire out. How ironic that one can kill
the other.
