The Volcano Poem

By Caden Rothzeid
Colorado Springs Mineralogical Society Pebble Pups

Volcanoes have lava that’s hot, hot, hot
I will not go near it, not, not, not

Volcanoes are filled with lots of gas
The lava takes up lots of mass

When it blows ashes go to the sky
I wonder how far they will fly?

Hawaii has Volcano National Park
I wonder if it’s scary in the dark?

Eruptions are hot, smoky and red
I like to read about them before I go to bed

The lava oozes out nice, smooth, and burning hot
I wonder if it will destroy a little or a lot?

Volcanoes are dangerous and I want to learn more
I love to learn about them, I don’t think they are a bore

This Internet program is also suitable for young people who are interested in Earth science but do not live near a rock club or gem and mineral society or for young people anywhere who want a deeper dive into these topics. The only requirement is that all participants must be members of the Colorado Springs Mineralogical Society and must fill out the CSMS membership form (under important websites) and send their registration and membership fee in.
