Here comes summer, Here comes summer,

Chirping robin, budding rose. Here comes summer, Here comes summer, Gentle showers, summer clothes. By Shel Silverstein Alliteration Alliteration uses the same beginning word sounds over and over, like a tongue twister. My beautiful bubbles burst and then,

I simply blow some more again. The setting sun slipped slowly down, Making room for the milky moon. Onomatopoeia Onomatopoeia is the use of words that imitate sounds. Wham! Splat! Pow! I am in trouble now! Simile and Metaphor

Similes are comparisons that use like or as. Her eyes are as green as emeralds. Clouds soft and fluffy like marshmallows. Metaphors are comparisons that say one thing is another. My fathers anger is a volcano about to blow. Video Clip: Hailstones and Halibut Bones by Mary O Neill
