How could you use onomatopoeia in a poem?

Answers
An onomatopoeia is a word that imitates or suggests the source of the sound that it describes, such as 'bang', 'beep', 'roar' or 'croak'. So once you have identified the word you can use it anywhere that is appropriate. They may be particularly useful in a poem to create a feeling of the environment which you are describing, as the sounds made when reading them will be similar to the sounds you would imagine in you were in the scene.
