Alliteration is the repetition of the same sounds or of the same kinds of sounds at the beginning of words or in stressed syllables of an English language phrase.

Alliteration is widely used in poetry as well as prose and is the most easily recognizable poetic device.

She sells sea shells on the sea shore. 

Betty Botter bought some butter, but she said, this butter's bitter; if I put it in my batter, it will make my batter bitter, but a bit of better butter will make my batter better.

The smooth silk scarf sits on the slender shoulders of the slim , svelte lass.
She strokes her silky smooth tresses , straightens her skirts , stares at the smooth silver mirror.
Singing a sweet song, she slides down the smooth shiny stairs.
Sandra sits on the smooth sofa, smiling.

Simple Simon sat near the shack on the sand , staring at the sea, sea-gulls and the sailing boat .
