Doing all those busy things that busy Queens do. But The Queen could never know, as you and I do, That doing nothing much can be the BEST thing to do. So from a forest far away, for your special day, We’re sending you some quiet and a little time to play. And quiet there was. The sort of quiet that makes the tip of your. Arrr, that’s right! / Perfect for a pillow fight.”.

Sixteen boisterous, rhyming poems — each one highlighting the job and personality of a different vehicle, from a backhoe to an ambulance to a snowplow — invite young children to meet their favorite trucks face-to-face. Cheerful illustrations show each one in action, digging (or dozing, or dumping) away. Engaging visual details like an anxious turtle crossing the street just ahead of a steamroller are sure to keep preschoolers poring over the pages as they consider the question, “Trucks as far as eyes can see. . . . Which truck would you like to be?”

What are onomatopoeia poems? They are poems that make use of onomatopoeia, those words that sound like what they describe…for example: bang, boom, crash, tinkle, crinkle, pop, crack, sizzle, and so many more. These words paint both a visual and a sound picture for the reader. The first of the Onomatopoeia Poems is Crack an Egg, first published in my book, A Little Bit of Nonsense.

Crack an Egg

Crack an egg.
Stir the butter.
Break the yolk.
Make it flutter.
Stoke the heat.
Hear it sizzle.
Shake the salt,
just a drizzle.
Flip it over,
just like that.
Press it down.
Squeeze it flat.
Pop the toast.
Spread jam thin.
Say the word.
Breakfast's in.

Defining Onomatopoeia

The first challenge of Onomatopoeia Poems is learning how to spell them. Once you get that down, you can feel very smart (and impress your friends). After that, you can put onomatopoeia to work for you. If you say, 'That's Greek to me,' you're absolutely right. According to Merriam-Websteronline, 'onomatopoeia' is derived from the Greek words 'onomat' and 'poien,' translating roughly into 'to make names.' A clearer definition would be that onomatopoeia is the use of words that sound like what they describe. A few examples would be: buzz, clink, tinkle, gasp, bubble... well, you get the idea.

Way in the past
the miners mined for ore.
They searched for copper, iron and salt,
for that and much, much more.
The bite
of dynamite
cut deep inside the earth.
The charge explodes revealing lodes
of minerals of worth.
The dust,
the air so mussed
went swirling through the sky.
It was a sight, the dynamite
that made the mountains fly.
The earth
was filled with mirth
so tickled by the boom.
The miner's pleasure,
each newfound treasure
that followed each

Onomatopoeia Poem #3

The next poem is also from Great Lakes Rhythm and Rhyme. It is all about the Tahquamenon Falls in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. (These falls were also the inspiration for Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's famous poem, Hiawatha.) Listen to all the 'whooshing,' 'gushing,' 'roars,' and more to 'hear' the onomatopeia.


Tahquamenon Falls
Water rushing,
past the limits of the edge.
Water barrels off the ledge,
whipping up the bottom sludge,
makes the water look like fudge,
growling with a freight train's roar,
wildly rushes out some more.

You could harness all the power
as it flashes hour by hour
and will never, ever stop,
thickly loaded from the top.
Water flowing, swiftly whooshing,
always whisking, always pushing
to the river down below,
always rushing, never slow,
till it falls right past the islands,
gives it just another try and
with a mild and calming quiver,
it becomes a simple river.
It's amazing if you spy it;
all that noise and then the
