The theme of the poem Fire and Ice is that the world will be destroyed some day and the poet is of the views that there will be two reasons for its destruction; fire and ice. Fire symbolises greed and ice symbolises coldness in relation and hate.
The poet says that the world is bound to destroy on day. However it will be destroyed by fire i.e. greed which makes a person do all the inhumane blunders. However, if the world would have to perish twice, then coldness i.e. hate would be responsible for its destruction.
So, greed and hate are the greatest enemies of humanity and the poet suggests us to never adopt them.
