    With a name like Frost, you'd think he'd have favored ice? But, either way, by fire or ice, the point is well made. (Report) Reply

    He's not saying he would like the world to end at all. The fire represents love and passion and his point is that those will destroy us before hate, but that hate is still perfectly capable of doing harm as well. (Report) Reply

    I have always liked this poem because it presents the duality of a human. That enough coldness or even passion is presented in a soul, put in terms of Doomsday-esque metaphors. (Report) Reply
