Frost believes, unleashed feelings of love and desire can caue the world to end up in flames whereas acts of cold blood due to feelings of revenge and hatred can cause the earth to end up as an ice ball.
Hence the poet makes attempts of cautioning man and exlpaining the possiblities of the end,due to his own foolishness and uncontrolled feelings.
