Example of Onomatopoeia

Gwendolyn Brooks

Cynthia in the Snow

It hushes
The loudness in the road.
It flitter-twitters,                           
And laughs away from me.
It laughs a lovely whiteness,
And whitely whirls away,                        [alliteration]
To be
Some otherwhere,
Still white as milk or shirts,
So beautiful it hurts.
