Onomatopoeias Unmasked


A big dog may "bark" and as drums might "bang",

Cell phones "beep", as things "bump" in the night.

Birds all "chirp" as the frogs and crickets "chatter",

A cold wind "blows" while the rain likes to "spatter".

Words may each indicate sounds that they make,

Onomatopoeias sounded by the words to create.

Hearing "buzzing" bees and "clapping" your hands,

You're not losing your mind, each one understands.


"Clanging" all of the pots and "clucking" of chickens,

"Crinkling" potato chips, pens that keep on "clicking".

"coughing" and "sneezing", hitching up with "hiccups"

Cows "moo" in moods, "plop-plop" on shoes, sticking.

Kittens are "purring", as earthquakes all are "rumbling",

Fingers are all "snapping", as some music is humbling.

Pigs are "sqealing", while my new shoes are "squeaking",

Poker cards are "flapping", a strange lady is "shrieking".


Awe corn "shucks"...I must live on a dairy farm in Oklahoma,

Whoops, I hear a dinner bell "clanging", old mill creek"flowing".

The ducks are "quacking", a screech owl is busy "screeching",

The old thirsty horse is "slurping" and the rooster is "crowing".

Just "cracking" a few nuts. Don't get squirrelly!

Just "cracking" a few nuts. Don't get squirrelly!
