A Royal Pardon

  This is the ultimate poem to demonstrate alliteration for kids with an enormous amount of alliteration and assonance in it, as well as the use of word play as a punchline.  It is part of a trilogy of poems which include consonance, language styles in performance poems, letter poems and word play.

Striving for Success
