ONOMATOPOEIA IN POETRY

 

KS1 AND KS2

 

By Josie Whitehead

Senses Poems Eye Talk The Taste Taker Peas Please It's Onomatopoeia My Dear Listening Page Prick Up Your Ears - Heading

Pitter patter, pitter patter

    Raindrops on my pane.

Rattle rumble, rattle rumble -

    That’s a passing train.

 

Slishy sloshy, slishy sloshy -

    A dishwasher’s soft beat

And clippy cloppy, clippy cloppy

    Horse shoes on the street.

 

Chitter chatter, chitter chatter -

    Magpies in the tree,

And jibber jabber, jibber jabber,

    Don’t speak fast to me.

 

Tippy tappy, tippy tappy -

    Fingers on the keys -

Which brings another poem your way - - -

     I hope that it will please.

Parents and Teachers:  This is a very recent poem which I'd almost forgotten and put on here quite late.  However I put it on The Times Educational Teachers' Resources and was delighted to see how very popular it was.  I hope your children like it too.  Josie
