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.

(176)  Your Western Valleyheart

It’s just another winter day

Here in California.  Do stay.

Daytime climbs to 65F.

Nighttime dips to 35F.

There’s no snow to shovel all year

Round in the valley.  Please stay dear.

The ski resorts are just an hour

Drive away to the beach, an hour

Oar two my darling, breeze the coast!

Our Westfield Galleria boast

High end shops for urban treasures

To eclectic dining pleasure

My buttercup blooms valley heart. 

Will you not give grace a new start?

My baby angel of mercy

Come concert the nightlife curtsy!

Kaleidoscope of adventure

Awaits you!  Let me be your guide.

My world is yours and yours alone.

My life journey with your gemstone.
