I just reread it, and I don't believe there are any examples of onomatopoeia.


There are descriptive words that bring to mind noises, such as tapping, rapping, flutter, et cetera -- but that is merely imagery. If it were onomatopoeia, it would be like, "Tap tap tap" or any kind of word that sounds like a sound, you know?

Hopefully that helped.
