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.

(196)  The Homeland for Us

Go big or go home screenager!

You’ve bought enough from E-tailers

To live it dry or lye deterge?

I’m stopping you with a douceur.

What you propose seems operose.

Why not get on stage rodeo?

That we have bijou together

On a perfect sandwich lawn perch

By the sounds of rustling leaves and

Of song birds in our grail heartland.
