, as cuckoo, meow, honk,  or boom,  by imitation of a

Evocative Language
Poets are charged with creating works that
are highly evocative. They use images
that demonstrate emotions and ideas,
either literally or metaphorically. Creative
language is one of the tools that the best
poets employ to get a point across.
Consonance, alliteration and rhyme are
often discussed, but among the most
evocative choices in poetry is the use of
onomatopoeia.
