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.

(271)  My Words Have I

Come with me into my new world.

I have eyes for only you girl!

Take my hand when the sand flow out.

I don’t want you to drift or doubt.

Let me anneal your affection.

Let me suck your blush complexion.

Allow me to feel your pain shun.

Strip down to your imperfections.

Sensitivity rarely shows.

Intuition introvert grow.

I will be your partner in strife.

I bend the knee for one real life.
