Best Volcano Poems
Dive into the world of volcanic awe with the best poems about volcano. These verses beautifully capture the fiery spirit and raw power of these natural wonders, igniting your poetic senses.
by Hilda Conkling
In Mexico a mountain stands alone.
It looms above me . . . a joy strikes my heart;
I see its transparent colors, its long opal hair . . .
But the moon would make it shine
A heap of silver.
My thoughts are gone from me
Because of that splendid trembling iridescent thing . . .
I know it will fade,
I know it must go.
Songs float over its crest . . .
Dusk is coming on . . .
I will touch the mountain!
My fingers touch air.
The broad bright country sways in folds
Like long slow waves . . .
If all the hills were water rising and falling
This would be the highest wave,
This would be the white-hooded wave,
This would be the great wave for sea-gulls to follow!
by Emily Dickinson
The reticent volcano keeps
His never slumbering plan;
Confided are his projects pink
To no precarious man.
If nature will not tell the tale
Jehovah told to her,
Can human nature not survive
Without a listener?
Admonished by her buckled lips
Let every babbler be.
The only secret people keep
3. The Heart of Fire
by Walter Kemper Bocock
Spoke the Volcano:
“The curse is upon me!
Once I was glorious,
Bathed in the sunlight;
Storms were below me;
Peaceful my summit.
Craving the vision
Which I could show them.
Millions admired me,
On their horizon.
“Now the foundations
Tremble below me.
Earth is unsettled;
Hell’s fiends are raging
Penned in my bosom.
Heaven is hidden by
There is no firmament;
Day is abolished.
Midnight is starless,
Save when the tempest
Bursts from Inferno,
Showering the world with
Firebrands and lava,
All of my verdure
—Flowers and forests—
Burning to blackness;
Leaving me hideous,
Slept the volcano
Ages and ages. Sunshine was bathing
All of his landscapes. Higher his summit;
Precious the metals Mined from his bosom;
Green were the forests, Fair were the flowers,
Health giving waters Flowed from his fountains.
Said the Great Spirit: “Heaven surrounds thee!
Hell that o’erwhelmed thee Was of thy making.”
by Mark Twain
Kilauea, fiery mountain,
Thy lava flows like blood,
Thy smoke ascends to heaven,
Thy flames are bright and good.

Thy crater is full of fire,
Thy beauty is beyond compare.

Yellowstone, land of fire and ice,
Thy geysers erupt, thy mountains rise,
Thy canyons yawn, thy rivers roar,
Thy beauty is awe-inspiring.
by Pablo Neruda

Your eruptions are a spectacle,
Your lava flows are like rivers of fire,
Your smoke clouds are like black castles.

Thy roar doth deafen the ear.

Is ever hot;
Thy liquid fire
Is ever bright;
The smoke that rises from thy mouth
Is like a shroud,
And the lava that flows from thy side
Is like a blood-red wound.
by Percy Bysshe Shelley
Mountain of fire! from thy tremendous cone,
The lava rivers roll consuming on,
While Etna’s flame doth glitter far below,
And the smoke-wreathed spires of cloud their summits show.

11. To Mount Etna
by P.B. Shelley
Eternal Spirit of the chainless Mind!
Brightest in dungeons, Liberty, thou art;
For there thy habitation is the heart—
The heart which love of Thee alone can bind;
And when thy sons to fetters are consign’d—
To fetters, and the damp vault’s dayless gloom,
Their country conquers with their martyrdom,
And Freedom’s fame finds wings on every wind.
Chillon! thy prison is a holy place,
And thy sad floor an altar—for ’twas trod,
Until his very steps have left a trace
Worn, as if thy cold pavement were a sod,
By Bonnivard! May none those marks efface!
For they appeal from tyranny to God.
by Yusef Komunyakaa
In that year of a red sky
& haze, gourds took a heavy
loss, eaten by heat,
rank coyotes swayed the bone yard.
In the skull
where you kept a ruby, a burned
with its black forked
tongue. I see you
a fog of flames
around the voice
in your throat.
The fevered sea
of your hair
spreads out around you,
& the sin of your tears
runs the course
of the forked river
in its underground.
13. Mount St. Helens
by Richard Hugo
We follow the truck through the north
night. In the summer I’ll follow it into water.
I’ll follow it through fire. Smoke rings
of fire boil from the mountain all day.
by Sylvia Plath
The descent beckons
as the ascent beckoned. Memory is a kind
a sort of renewal even
and in progress.
I can hear, underground,
that sucking and sobbing,
in my veins, in my bones I feel it—
The small waters seep among the columns
The ledges, the whole cathedral of rock—
Is polished as if I’d just been sick.
by Lord Byron
The fiery mountains answer each other;
Their thunderings are echoed from zone to zone;
The tempestuous oceans, Paeaea, roll
Their long and measured swell to the poles.
The tropics love us in their sky, while
He, from the cold snows of the utmost North
Called through the woods, heathery and high,
And the cool mossy mead and deep-tangled dell
Shouted back their red wild, wolfish cry.
16. Etna and the Little Sicilian
by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Etna and the river of the sea
Etna and the river of the sea
The sun among the winter trees
A man with a branch among the waves
Round Sicily a stranger roves
My leg is no more lame
If it were still I do not
A bandage cannot heal
I could not wrap it
17. The Volcano Lover
by Susan Sontag
“Love, which is quickly kindled in the gentle heart,
seized this man for that fair form that was taken from me.”
“…There will come a day when every little thing you do will seem incredible…”
“Here is the story:
There is a woman who wants to possess me,
who wants to possess a house of my own, an apartment of my own, a room of my own.
She and others, I thought of them as swarms, flying, come from that too heavy weight of the hidden planets.
A sudden stroke of bad luck: it doesn’t matter what happens to me…”
by Mary Jo Salter
But still the scar
on our soul insists that it’s Mt. Vesuvius—
our night of uncountable deaths, a night of blood
beyond the night the cities were to burn.
“Just as bad dreams of misery are real”—
that, I suppose, was what our mother said.
“Are true. In misery you were real. You lived.”
All I was fit for in that dark land, alive
but still in my egg: All night I said goodbye.
19. In the Crater of Vesuvius
by Christina Rossetti
A yellow mantle wraps us round
Snowdrops, in earnest of the spring:
We watch above the plain the long blue line
Of the Campagna’s undulating length.
In restless silent parley with ourselves
We gaze across the Roman Campagna to where Rome
Rides shadowy on a brooding bough of peace.
All soft and vague
A waning moon is half-observed through mist,
Nor seen nor greeted.
A softness veils our thoughts as well as Rome.

I am a volcano, and I am ancient, My fires burn deep within. I have seen the world change and grow, While I have remained the same.
I am a force of nature, to be reckoned with, My power is vast and wild. I can create and destroy, In a single breath, a single stride.
But I am also a teacher, And I have much to impart. I teach the world about the power of fire, And the beauty of rebirth.
I warn the world of the dangers I hold, But I also offer my gifts of creation. I am the volcano, and I am here to stay.
Respect my power, and fear not my might, For I am a part of the world’s natural light.
I am the fire that burns within the earth, I am the power that gives birth. I am the volcano, and I am here to teach, The world about its beauty and its reach.
I have seen the rise and fall of empires, The birth and death of stars. I have witnessed the power of love, And the depths of human scars.
But through it all, I have remained steadfast, A beacon of hope and light. I am the volcano, and I am here to stay, To guide the world through day and night.
So listen to my warning, and heed my call, For I am the volcano, and I have seen it all.

So listen to my warning, heed my call, I am the volcano, I’ve seen it all.
3. Ode to a Volcano
by William Wordsworth
Volcano! child of fire and earth,
What power controls thy dreadful birth?
What secret cause thy fury feeds?
Why dost thou hurl thy molten seeds?
Thy summit, lost in smoke and cloud,
Hides from the eye the fiery shroud,
That, veil’d in darkness, wraps thy brow,
And hides thy secrets deep below.
But from thy crater, vast and wide,
Where fiery torrents rage and glide,
Huge columns of black smoke ascend,
That o’er the heavens widely blend.
And when the night’s dark mantle falls,
Thy fiery light the sky appals,
And casts a red and lurid glow
On the dark earth and sea below.
Oh, dread volcano! who can tell
What secrets in thy bosom dwell?
What mysteries thy depths unfold?
What powers thy mighty strength uphold?
4. The Eruption of Kilauea
by Robert Louis Stevenson
Kilauea, red with molten flow,
Thy fiery torrents wildly go.
The earth doth tremble at thy might,
And darkness veils the day from sight.
The mountain shakes, the ground doth rend,
And fiery streams their course extend.
The lava flows, a fiery tide,
And all around is scorched and dried.
The forests burn, the rivers boil,
And all is lost in fiery toil.
But from the midst of smoke and flame,
A new world rises, all the same.
For Kilauea, though it bring
Destruction in its fiery wing,
Doth also bring new life and birth,
To all the scorched and barren earth.
by Pablo Neruda
With a heart of fire.
You stand so still,
Yet within you,
A fiery storm rages.
Your crater, a gaping maw,
Ready to spew forth
Your molten wrath.
But you are also a giver of life,
Your lava enriching the soil,
Making it fertile,
So that new things may grow.
We fear you,
But we also respect you.
You are a force of nature,
A reminder of the power
That lies within the earth.
6. Mount Vesuvius
by Lord Byron
Fair mount! whose brow is wreathed with snow,
And whose green sides the vine-leafs bind,
How little dost thou see below
Of all the loveliness we find!
Thy summit, like a soaring bird,
Looks down upon the earth below,
And sees the cities that have heard
Thy thunder’s voice and seen thy glow.
But thou art silent now and calm,
And o’er thy head the heavens bend.
Thy lava streams have ceased to burn,
And thy fiery breath is spent.
Yet still thy presence fills the air,
And in thy crater’s depths we trace
The memory of that awful night
When Herculaneum met its fate.
7. The Volcano God
by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
There is a god who dwells within
The heart of every burning hill.
His name is Vulcan, and he rules
The fires that rage and never still.
He is a mighty god, and strong,
And all the powers of earth obey.
He shakes the mountains with his voice,
And melts the rocks with fiery ray.
But he is also a kind god,
And gives good gifts to men.
He sends them fire to warm their homes,
And melt the iron in their mines.
He sends them heat to cook their food,
And light to guide them through the night.
He sends them lava to enrich their soil,
And make their fields all green and bright.
So let us praise the volcano god,
For all the good that he has done.
And let us ask him to be kind,
And spare us from his fiery breath.
8. The Volcano’s Fury
In the heart of the Earth, a fury sleeps,
A volcano’s secret, so deep and steep.
It lies in slumber for countless years,
As the world spins on, in hopes and fears.
But when the time comes, it awakes with might,
Sending molten lava to the starry night.
It roars and rumbles, its fiery song,
A symphony of nature, powerful and strong.
Its ash-black plumes reach for the sky,
As the land trembles and nearby mountains cry.
In its rage, it reshapes the land,
A reminder of the world’s power, so grand.
9. Volcano’s Whispers
Beneath the surface, where tectonic plates meet,
Volcano’s whispers, both fierce and sweet.
Magma flows in chambers, deep and wide,
As pressure builds, nature does confide.
The mountain breathes, a slow inhale,
Its secrets hidden, a fiery tale.
It waits for the moment to take its stand,
And reveal the power in its fiery hand.
But in its calm, it seems so still,
A dormant giant on a quiet hill.
It lulls the world with its peaceful guise,
Yet within, a tempest of fire lies.
10. Ode to the Volcano
Oh, volcano, nature’s fiery heart,
Your beauty and power set you apart.
With every eruption, you paint the sky,
In shades of red and orange, you reach so high.
Your lava flows like a river of fire,
Molten passion, an earthbound desire.
You shape the land with your molten might,
A sculptor of landscapes, day and night.
Your crater’s yawn is a window deep,
To Earth’s core, where mysteries keep.
In the midst of your fiery embrace,
We find a connection to this sacred place.
Oh, volcano, in your rumbling voice,
You make the Earth’s story your choice.
A storyteller of ages past and present,
In your eruptions, we find nature’s essence.

by Thomas Campbell
Prince Athanase had one fair daughter,
And one fair daughter only;
And proud was he, for she, he thought,
Had inherited his fame and glory.
Her name was Ada, and a cheek
With love’s own tinge was tender;
The solace and the pride of Age,
With Beauty’s bloom of splendor.
by Helen Maria Williams
Gigantic flame! Thy awful dart
Unconquerable still shall fly
Plunging into some unwarmed heart
While smokeless yet it climbs the sky.
The cisterns of the northern deep,
The cold cold fountains of the north,
Have ever from the swarthy car
Flown back in surges to their birth.
