You no doubt know this lovely poem -

Western wind, when wilt thou blow,
The small rain down can rain?
Christ, that my love were in my arms,
And I in my bed again!

or this doggerel

A bear whose coat looked a wee bit worn
Cut off his fur one summer morn
When the weather's warm he's without a care
But how much cold can a bare bear bear?

Try Wilfred Owens 'Anthem for Doomed Youth' for some great examples of onomatopoeia
