States of Matter Poem Solid Squashed together, the particles are tight. Some think they’re still – but that’s not right. Even though you can’t see them shaking, Believe it or not – they are vibrating! Liquid Particles mingling and inter-twined, There’s not much room in here to find! The forces of attraction are still quite strong, But particles are free to move slowly along Gas Particles whizzing everywhere, Moving randomly, they just don’t care! Speeding left and speeding right, With space in between, they’re amazingly light.
