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.

(169)  A Dreamer Paradise

I will cherish you forever!

Never betray your trust my world.

My days brighten when you enter.

My nights rim with excitement girl!

You’re a real-life fantasy heard!

A rough diamond pebbles in curl.

A business woman with levers,

All strings to haul the franchisers.

You’re my loyal confidante pearl.

My wisdom to ageless deferred.

You’ve become my best friend with perks.

We laugh & cry movie tear jerks.

We gamble all night till it purse.

What outsiders don’t know won’t hurt.

Damned if I am right!  Those pampers. 

Give up earning to wealthier

Kind for artistic endeavors.

Well-educated, well-mannered,

Too tender hearted to reverse

The course of action in banner.
