I really love alliteration, it’s one of my favourite techniques. I thought I’d post up a poem I wrote at school in English class, the purpose being to use as much alliteration as possible…
Red sun setting on summer fields,
The green grass hiding in the gloom,
An old orange oak tree,
Standing staring at the stars.
The falls flowing far away
Dashing down the dales
Searching soundly for the sea,
To where it may run free
And need return no more.
A couple walking in the moonlight,
Why wake at this late hour?
Daisies droop their drowsy heads,
As do all summer’s flower.
Soon they stop their delicate dancing,
And lean against the old oak tree,
There they lie in each other’s arms
And silently slide asleep.
