When your skate jumping
like ocean waves is the
consonant sound "wuh".
(here "w" is voiced consonant)

When you feel like
a ghost white as snow
flying in the wind is the
semi-vowel sound "uh".

When you just go with the
robot just sounds "r"
and "w" is silent.
You must write "w" before "r"
but you can't pronounce.

When the helicopter takes you:

At times only sounds "h"
 and "w" is silent. Who knows why?

At times sounds the
 digraph "wh". Who knows why?
(here "w" is voiceless consonant)
