EXAMPLES OF ALLITERATION POEMS

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.
