“Fire and Ice” is the best poem I think personally because while it is one of his most popular poems
ever, it also has a very compelling and destructive tone to it. It is short but very latent with visual cues that make you
really think about the world and how it could end in either of these situations. Armageddon as it is known has been a fascination
and intensely studied subject throughout human history, even getting mentioned in the Bible.
He also does a great job of using Alliteration in this poem, combing “fire” and “desire” as
well as “twice” with “ice”.
"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on. "
