Contest Description

Alliteration is a literary device that repeats a speech sound in a sequence of words that are close to each other. Alliteration typically uses consonants at the beginning of a word to give stress to its syllable. Alliteration plays a very crucial role in poetryand literature: It provides a work with musical rhythms.

A poem with alliteration.  One of my favourite poetic techniques, which I use in many of my poems.

Any poem in alliteration form.

NEW poems only, dated from 23 March 2018 onwards.

Please date the poem.

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing, Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before
