Journal 48
A Collection of New Alliterative Verse
by ArchDuke Kenneth Khanh Du

“My reflection upon the current climate which send heat waves simmering throughout time.”

New Alliterative Verse has five set parameters defined by me:
1. A couplet line poem with 20 lines or less
2. Each line contained no more than eight syllables
3. Each line has alliteration of either consonant or vowel
4. The alliteration must be tied to the next line (hence couplet)
5. Rhymed or unrhymed

Alliterative Verse as a form was adopted by me from the skalds of Norway. Skalds were the Viking's poet-musicians and their poetic form began somewhere in the 9th Century. The original form(s) with many however remain unstructured and often confusing /or ambiguous.

(132)  I Can Give You the Days & Nights!

I can give you so much more!

If you only listen,

Here I have arranged a new score.

I can offer you so much more!

If only you remain honest

About your feelings for me.  Swore!

I can love you till the day I

I can die for you if only

You accept my way of the sword. 

I will die for you vale heart!

Here stance I fighting your demons,

Blocking your nightmares from coming,

Stain red carbon wielding to end

All the vile dull edges villains! 

I can give you the brave new world

If only you accept malore.

For two hearts scintillate in gore, 

Whence serenade the greatest lift!

I can give you the starry nights,

If only you accept… I’m yours.
