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.

(167) You’re a Beautiful Person Inside-Out!

I am blinded by your love tease!

Stars struck! Dumbfounded by beauty

Brush as feed for humanity,

Selfless and courageous, sexy

In the charitable soup peas

Line of fire kitchen smiley

To grimace & curse, trustworthy

In the face of adversity,

You nurse them back to health pretty

Soon your new love fosters and breathe  

Life in those who forsaken me.

Shaken the cycle of life needs

Enough for bare necessity

To shelter and nurture truly  

Yours one of a kind memory

Not forgotten to face the lead

That been hiding your sanity

From random evil vanity. 

You’re the keeper of my heart beat,

The light of my life whence God speed.
