Can anyone give me some examples of onomatopoeia?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
I like noise
The whoop of a boy, the thud of a hoof,
The rattle of rain on a galvanised,
The rush of the wind,adoor on the slam,
The boom of thunder, the crash of the waves,
The din of a river that races and raves,
The crack of a rifle, the clank of a pail,
From any old sound that the silence destroys,
Arises a gamut of soul-stirring joys.

Onomatopoeia is the formation of words in imitation of sounds; a figure of speech in which the sound of a word is imitative of the sound of the thing which the word represents;
as, the buzz of bees; the hiss of a goose; the crackle of fire.
(1) Ripple--by Lelia Devlin
Watch around the slightest thought.
Sight-blinding darkness beckons weepingly,
a fit of senseless rage envelopes.
Trod across fragmented waters softly,
every breath a motionless silhouette
of what this could have been.
(2) Boat--by Lacey
paddling down a creek
splish, splash, whump
a fish jumps on meSource(s): (1) http://www.voicesnet.org/displayonepoem.aspx?poemi... (2) http://www.sd35.bc.ca/lm/archive/div8poetonomatopo...
