    so simple............& deep. Like a koan.
    Sathe, if you believe man's greed will end the world, I think you hold with fire.........greed being desire to the extreme. But of course hate is also great. I believe the poet knew that it will be mankind that will start the destruction of the earth should it come, whichever way the earth responds - be it fire, or ice or whatever.

    As the ice melts
    From One Love
    All that remains
    Fire in the soul

    The poet thinks that the downfall of the wold will be desire, but hate is also more than strong enough to get the job done. (Report) Reply

    It will not be ice
    it will not be fire
    But it will be greed of man
    who is plundering nature and mother earth,
    In name of progress

    Ice or fire...there is no difference. The result is the same. (Report) Reply

    This poem makes you think and wonder to the point that you find yourself thinking which would be best, Fire or Ice. This is one of those poem that will be around for ever. (Report) Reply

    To say i chose fire would be wrong, but with ice also has the same outcome. Death can come in many ways. But the end of the world is a different story. There are many ways it could happen so i guess if i had to chose, i would hold with those who favor fire. But ice is great and would suffice. :) (Report) Reply
