Volcano Poem

Magma,
Melted, molten rock,
Like soup that boils in a crock…
pressure cooker
Beneath the Earth,
It rolls and roils,
Beneath the Earth,
It turns and toils…
Pressure grows,
Magma escapes,
Blows through holes of different shapes…

Mountain cones,
Ring of fire,
Volcanoes blow,
Ash flies higher!
Magma flows,
Becomes hot lava,
Cools to make,
A place like Java…

Magma comes from underground,
And flows as lava all around…
Listen now,
Don’t interrupt,
When volcanoes blow,
They do erupt!

Volcano:

An opening in the Earth’s crust through which molten rock called magma can escape in the form of lava.
