Summer is a season that provides many opportunities for writing original poems using alliteration.
Writing a Summer Alliteration Poem
After spending a sunny summer week at the shore, spending time walking on the sizzling sand and watchingÂ my family maneuver theÂ waves, the following summer alliteration poem came to my mind’s eye. Alliteration in poetry is used to create a feeling or a picture by accentuating descriptive words. The alliteration used in the poem just seemed to fall into place for me.Â (I think the scary part is left over from the scariestÂ park ride I went on with my 9 year old granddaughter.)
Sizzling Summer Alliteration Poem
Sizzling summer sand
shines under the setting summer sun.
A statuesque shadow suspended high
shades the summer sky as it
sends shivers along a swimmer’s spine,
while unsuspecting bathers splash and swim.
The sunset stretches across the shore
as the scary shadow slips
beneath the salty sea
leaving sunken sounds unheard.

As you read this poem, what did you picture the “scary shadow” to be? For me, it was that ride I mentioned. It was a large pirate ship that rocked up and down until you were looking straight down to the water below! Never again!
very great alliteration
I pictured a large, rather forbidding building at water’s edge.
I really like the last line!
