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.

Don’t forget to look up skyline

To uplift your work day routine.

There’s a lot of hardship assigned;

However, movement’s with cloud nine.

Don’t grudge at the baseline too long.

Criticisms downcast the strong,

But your attitude, right or wrong,

Will affect the work in progress.

Chin up to the sky!  Dreamscape best

How project will be invested?

Materialized like tree branch quotes,

With stuffy ladder role cloud votes,

To make the informed mental notes.

Ponder at the new horizon

To know growth seize the division

Between heaven and earth vision –

Our world rounds up, the number crunch 

One or zero for transaction.

To take place the infocursum

Must be a wise investment drum.
