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

(200)  Why Don’t You Share?

I hate the sullen salesman’s speech.

I freight the fool mense gale in breach.

This be the society we

Give cause upon instinctively.

Such childhood memory recall!

Who dial could my song lead to fall?

You have said it; I re-guilt if...

My path abates tris.  Your real wish.

My stuttering form anxious lines

To reel or not?  Inside the wine

Slur the unconditional ruffs,

Blur girding to contemplate love.

I am the bearer of sins!

I have no family or kins.
