The poem ?Fire and Ice? by Robert Frost is a metaphor for human perceptions of desires and hatred. The fire symbolises burning desires while the ice on the other hand describes ice-cold hatred. It describes how we humans will be the end of our own race. It also illustrates how desires, feelings of lust and passion leads us to do ourselves harm, how hatred and icy unsympathetic judgement makes us cold towards everyone.
