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.

(222)  My Life for a Day?

I am not sure what I should say

To a gorgeous girl in my way.

Should I smile and walk around her?

I’ll start a conversation duh.

Never mind, I am too speechless!

Faint.  Drop dead on the floor!  Needless

To say that I am falling for

Not my intention!  Mellow more

Aphrodisiac for a smack

On the face, I read the attack.

I stare.  I smile.

I drop the mirror for a wild!

As soon as you open your mouth,

Flowers bloom even in such drought

Of pantomime, I’m mister doubt.

Want to ask you for a day out.

If I can’t have your cell number,

My life might as well be over.

For if you don’t give me a chance.

I will die not knowing romance!
