The following senses list poem talks about how the use of rhythm and rhyme can be important in poetry. It includes a small amount of alliteration and assonance, as well as some personification and metaphors.
If you are unsure what alliteration is, look at the TEACHERS PAGE, FIGURATIVE WRITING, ALLITERATION for details. Some of my poems are written specifically as alliteration poems, whilst others simply use alliteration along with a combination of figurative writing techniques so may include it to a lesser degree. I have listed all of my poems in which I have used some alliteration together here, and have provided a description with each poem to give an indication as to how much alliteration features within it, as they will vary in usefulness when teaching (or learning) alliteration specifically as a figurative writing skill.
This creative alternative nursery rhyme definitely rates among my ‘unpleasant, childish’ silly poems and uses a list format to go through the colours. It has elements of alliteration throughout and uses hyperbole as humour.
Little Boy Green, go blow your nose;
It’s constantly dripping all over your toes.
But where is the boy who should clean up your shoes?
He’s covered in dirty, disgusting ooze!
