English term or phrase: grassy sound
"My feet tangled together and I fell down, thumping my elbow on a gravestone, barely missing another with the back of my head. I landed with a grassy thud, looking up at the moon which had just barely cleared the trees."
Alex Linosh
English translation:a muffled thud
Explanation:
Quite a soft sound, as you would expect when falling on grass rather than on something hard.
