Treasure Island

Justin Reamer

(2 October 1993 / Holland, Michigan)

Onomatopoeia


Bang, bash!
Slam, crash!
Kabaam, splash!
Boom, trash!
Crack, clank,
Ka-chik,
Click, whack,
Whap, wham,
Gag, cough,
Hark, scream,
Shout!

Onomatopoeia is the sound words
We use every day
In our everyday lives
That illustrate our language
With magic.

It is truly amazing what you can
Do with words like them,
Such as banging a door,
Or slamming it,
Or crashing into a pole,
Or whacking a tree,
Or something along those lines.
Onomatopoeia is amazing.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
