Hmph

Hmph is a sound
That many do make
Whether prying a nail
Or sitting down at the lake

Hmph is a word
That sounds like itís spelled
Whether itís spoken softly
Or whether itís yelled

Hmph is a word
That is also a sound
And on this now I
Will truly expound

Yes this type of word
It does have a name
Which is onamonapea
Using itís like a game

It is fun to use
From time to time
Whether just for fun
Or in meter and rhyme

Whether stubbing your toe
Or straining your muscles
Yes hmph is a word
For all types of bustles

It is indeed a
Word that is not used
Literarily to often
And on it few have mused

Hmph is a word
That is more of a sound
To some this statement
Might seem quite profound

Whatever the case
Whenever the time
Hmph is used often
But never for a rhyme

This was a cute poem. The rhyming was great. I liked the lesson about onomatopoeia. It's one of my favorite words.

Small note you used to instead of too.

But the meter and the delight of the poem kept me smiling throughout.

Cute poem. Some stanzas flowed better than others, some of the rhyming words seemed a little forced: muscles - bustles, used - mused. But overall, I liked the message.

LOL! What fun... nice work on this, and your last stanza is great!
