Alliteration can also be used in prose.

“Harry Potter’s appearance did not endear him to the neighbours, who were the sort of people who thought scruffiness ought to be punishable by law, but as he had hidden himself behind a large hydrangea bush this evening he was quite invisible to passers-by.”
—–Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, J. K. Rowling _______________(Buzzle)
