The sounds of night

We are exploring poetic writing and the effective use of Onomatopoeia.
Onomatopoeia is a word that imitates a sound or action.

Here are some of our poems. Can you spot the onomatopoeia?

The sounds of night

Icy, cold shivers running down my spine,
The wind blowing through my wet hair,
Winds howling around me.

The nights dark, misty and moonlit,
Silhouettes of trees everywhere,
Clicking cicadas all around.

Possums screeching like an old swing set,
Moreporks and other animals form a band,
Water quietly trickling below.
