    The world, my friends, it seems to me
    will end by our stupidity.
    However arrogant, I think
    That we not first would go extinct. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem! We do tend to destroy ourselves and our world by the way of trying to satisfy excessive desires or through hatred. (Report) Reply

    This poem has a very interesting rhythm, and a very interesting perspective on the destruction of the world. (Report) Reply

    The poem is one of the great poem of a great poet and the fire may be the chaos world facing and end result of destruction through wars and armaments stockpiled and other the ice the cold attitude of the humans about the destructive tendencies that makes the unpleasant destruction altogether. May be I am mistaken but I understand it is a great poem. (Report) Reply

    In fire or ice will the world end?
    The fire of heated war, the ice of cold greed.
    YES, fire or ice. Or both.
    A poem with truth for all ages, until the end! (Report) Reply

    Concise and very apt, the poem sums up two intrinsic aspects of the human race beautifully. Frost is one of my favourites for his imagery and effortless rhyme schemes. (Report) Reply

    Very illuminating considering the trend at the moment to have buckets of ice water tipped over oneself. Which in reality is a satanic purificatiom ritual prior to sacrifice. I know of one person at least who chose to have a bucket of slurry tipped over them.

    Ah well each to their own.
    Makes one wonder what Robert really knew. (Report) Reply
