Way above the boiling point

Gushing high and hot from the
Earth, Old Faithful in
Yellowstone has quite a girth.
Strokkur in Iceland now
Erupts frequently;
Recently unblocked it
Spurts magnificently.

An early 20th century earthquake had blocked Strokkur’s conduit. In the 1960’s this blockage was cleared. Strokkur now erupts regularly.
