Fire and Ice - Robert Frost

So I decided to go with Robert Frost's Fire and Ice Poem as my selection. I chose it because I love that poem and while I haven't done any imagry for it that poem has always stuck around in my head since first hearing it, and I figured that's a good place to start.

So first is going through the poem:

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
Robert Frost

So I've underlined some key imagry and ideas that I came up with. And here were my notes:
1. Going down in flames vs quietly (fire vs ice)
2. Fire = Desire / Ice = Destruction / Desire vs Destruction
3. Desire causing hate
4. World ends in fire (desire) or ice (destruction)
5. Key images: world, fire, ice, death, destruction
6. Key emotions: hate desire suffice
Here are my sketched out ideas:

So I liked the idea of the world as a circle, and half of it down in fire and half in ice. I took that concept and made these below:
