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.

Too old pen too young.  I wood half

Act on velleity; break calf.

Blend in to farmed querencia.

Trench through the selcouth of fika.

Glowing forest slate jellyfish

Nearby to move the logy swish.

My abditory generate.

Brings apricity to the hunt.

Stay around stead beamish possums.

My werifesteria stump.

I balter for all the problems

Of our wide world, zenosyne plum.

It’s up to a democratic

Electoral choice with manic

Aliferous consequences.

West turpentine commences.
