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.

(168) Lovers for the Night

I am falling in love with you

For being one romantic nude

Transparently innocent rouge!

Exciting, energetic hues!

You captivate the guests on cue

With your feisty humor and news

Of Gremlin pool parties and booze.

Your foxy fragility woos

My strong-willed desire to hold you

In my arm to protect you muse

From all the treacherous lies grew,

In grown nails inflicting the accuse!

I admire your barbecue.

I fancy how your lips soul food.

I am touched by your peeps tattoo.

We’ve grown beyond friendship bamboo!

Beyond taking a hike to lose

The world’s dramada on skid rude

To incredibly smart occluse,

Committed red hot baby goo!
