Fire and Ice Robert Frost

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.
The tone of Robert Frosts poem "Fire and Ice" is irony. The fire is a symbol of love and the ice is a symbol of hate and Robert implies that those two things will destroy us. This is ironic because the two main human emotions that impact us are the most dangerous.
