Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
I think the is tone of the poem is aspiration and despite. I think this because in the text above it talks about how fire is a desire and he would rather die burned then freezing to death. Also above it talks about how the ice is hate. The ice and fire is great but also horrible, he laughs at it while he is scared.
The theme I think that you can get from reading this poem is hatred and desire. In the text above it saids "Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire" The author desires the fire and hates the ice. He would rather die in desire then die in hate.
In this poem the fire represents desire, lust, love, passion in his heart. The ice represents hatred and ignorance of the society.
