A continuation of our series,
“Poems Even a Middle Schooler Will Like.”
by Joyce Armor
If I should list my favorite words,
They’d sound a lot like this:
Rumble, crash, snort, jangle, thump,
Roar, fizzle, splat, moo, hiss.
Not to mention gobble, clang,
Tweet, sputter, tick tock, growl;
Crackle, chirp, boom, whistle, wheeze,
Squawk, jingle, quack, thud, howl.
Then of course there’s grunt, toot, cuckoo,
Thunder, bang, pop, mush,
Rattle, splash, rip, ding-dong, and…
My parents’ favorite – Hush!
(and a prize to the first person who can name the literary technique used in this poem!)
