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.

I also used this poem for my english class, and thank you Jonathon, your
comments were helpful. Why is it that the author agrees with those who
favor fire, rather then ice? I thought it was interesting that one of the
messages in the poem was, to taste of desire is to know of hate.

This is a very interesting poem, I used it for a poetry assignment in my
English class as well. I personally don't know how the earth will end, but
I can tell you one thing, I don't want to be here to find, and if I am
lucky enough, I wont be.

I don't think the world can end by fire alone, or ice alone. It will take
both desire and hate. As for killing off all the smart ones, who said they
weren't part of the problem.

Oooh! Spooky! I like how the world is supposed to end in two opposite ways.
If I didn't take the Bible's view, I'd say that the world would end because
all the stupid and sick people got together and killed off all the smarter
people such as doctors and great poets.

The author tries to alegorically personify the danger and destruction
that could be caused by desire and hate by symbolizing these two negative
human qualities as fire and ice.
