What Are My Noises Made Of?

Published by Family Friend Poems November 9, 2022 with permission of the Author.

Sneezes are fireworks
bursting out your nose.
Trumps are musicians
blowing their trombones.

Yawns are explorers
keen to see the world.
Coughs are dusty rags
trying to unfurl.

Tummy rumbles are lions
searching for their prey.
Snores are tired piglets
chatting about their day.

Hiccups are frogs
jumping with glee.
Burps are yummy foods
saying Thanks for having me!
