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.

(205)  Making Snow Melt

The beauty of one red moment

When our skins flushed at the volant.

Our drive through the forest preserve

To a camping creek in reserve.

We howl under the blue moonbeam

Dancing half naked in extreme

Slur cold conditions to impress

The girl of your dream, attaché

On a mission to inveigh slay.

How nobody play hide & seek.

Two groins rub in sweat secrecy.

Someone asks to pay or retreat.

Your victory hides in defeat.
