Earthquake Poem


Rattle, rumble,
Shook and shake,
Tremble, trouble,
Scream earthquake!
richter scale paper
Beneath the Earth,
Nothing waits,
Strikes and slips,
Tectonic plates…
Pushing grinding,
Will it halt?
What will happen,
To the fault?
Rattle, rumble,
Shook and shake,
Tremble, trouble,
Scream earthquake!

What is an Earthquake?
