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.

If you’re given a death sentence

Of six months to live till the end,

And you have a chance to change this

Course wouldn’t you take it?  To live with

Your love ones for many more years!

Exactly what happen in here!

Someone near & dear is given

An ultimatum to reverse

His congestive heart failure

By walking on the treadmill and

He refused to do it! Stubborn

Out of fear to improve

For the better, heart & brain two

Way dialog keep saying one thing –

I cannot make my heart pumping

Normally anymore!  The heart

Itself want to retire the spark

Of electromagnetic field

Rhythm that kept the life force shield

Intact!  I can’t force you to heal.
