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.

(231)  Honey Attract Words

You only see the blue veins

Pulsating from my transparent

Hands for the slice of my brown eyes

Send you farther away inside.

With inert lips, there’s a person

Sensitive to speech aversion.

You speak of intimacy;

Yet rely on new company.

Communication is not there!

New attires when nobody care?

Pour those words in a coffee mug

And finish it without plant bug!

You need to save and recycle,

And start riding a bicycle.

Now you want to be the honey

So you can attract the money.

Do you feel the vowels integrate? 

The sourced consonants emulate.

Those curls from restrained affliction.

The dire clues from indecision.
