Onomatopoeia defined:

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, for example, Boom, Clap and Poof!

Here are some Onomatopoeia poems:

Tick-tock goes the clock
after the boat hits the rock
and finds its way to the dock.

Vroom goes the car
Crack when you break the corn
Next thing you know a baby is born

The ducky goes quack
We think its wack
Doggy goes woof woof
The cow goes moo moo
Finally the lion roars

Clickidy clack the train is off the track
Clattering and clanging I dropped the dishes
That will be $4.00 dollars- Ka-Ching
