A less flexible rhyme and stanza became the norm after the Norman Conquest through the multiple influences of the Latin hymn, Norman-French poetry, and perhaps Norse poetry, yet alliterative verse in English was still being written in the 16th century, as in the poem on the Battle of Flodden which was written in or after 1513.
And when even that tenacious tradition yielded, the alliterative word-pair has continued in English proverb, phrase and slang as a sort of hidden magic.
time and tide
a round robin
a pretty penny
Ethelred the Unready
big bonks
clever clogs
Horace the Hedgehog
Kirk the burke
lease-lend
pay and display
church and chapel
Peter and Paul
blankety-blank
the caring charity
hi-ho-hum
spare the rod and spoil the child (that's a full alliterating line)
proud as a peacock
a wee doch and doris
Janet and John (death would have read this one), or: every Jack has his Jill (doesn't work for gay Jack )
a right royal ----
Doctor Death
a country cousin…
a so-and-so
and so on and so on…
