Poets are charged with creating works that are highly evocative. They use images that demonstrate emotions and ideas, either literally or metaphorically. Creative language is one of the tools that the best poets employ to get a point across.
Among the most evocative choices is the use of onomatopoeia. This includes words that mimic the actual sounds we hear. For example, bark came about because it mimics the actual sound a dog makes. Also, a bell clangs in the night, also mimicking the actual sound. Let's enjoy some examples of onomatopoeia poems.
