Ok this is my onomatopoeia from school.

Snacking at the Horror Show

Drip Drop. The sink valve was leaking.
Creak. And the bottom step creaking.

I stopped in the middle of the room,
Drinking in all of its gloom.

It was silent when all of a sudden I hear
BAM from above, the sound was remarkably clear.

Thud as I move all the chairs.
Thump thump as I run up the stairs.

I come to a stop.
Phew, I have reached the top.

Screech. Great, another strange sound
Squish, I begin to look around.

Slurp, my friend is drinking a coke,
Crunch, and eating popcorn, he better not choke.

Shush, I ask for their noise to cut back
Howl, in the movie the werewolf is about to attack!




  • from Tad Winslow:

    Onamatopia is one of my favorite words and things to implement in my writing. In the poem you’re very concerned about your friend eating the popcorn—that made me laugh. Great rhymes, even by the end when you were reaching to make it work, it wrapped up full circle going back to the movie. A+
