The poem is structured with nine lines, each with a varying amount of syllables. Three lines that discuss fire and they each have nine syllables, while the other six lines discuss ice and have either four or eight syllables. Frost also uses some rather creative verbs in his poem to describe fire and ice. In his poem Frost says, “From what I’ve tasted of desire/ I hold with those who favor fire,” (3 and 4) and “I think I know enough of hate/ To say that for destruction ice/ is also great.” (6,7, and 8) From lines three and four Frost uses the verbs tasted and favor which are verbs that show more emotion with fire, which shows that acts of emotion can be like a fire. However, in lines six and seven, Frost uses words like think and say that show more logic with ice, and this shows that crimes that are thought out are full of hatred and ice.

This rhyme scheme, along with the varying syllables, creates a very unique flow for the poem, making the audience read it differently than other poems.
