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.

(292)  The Reason to Grow

I need somebody to love!

Love shoves off behove boxing gloves.

I need somebody to glue with!

Blitz dish wish cuttlefish squish gist.

I want your love.  I want it now!

Allow storm cloud endow unplowed.

What I want, what are you waiting

Forest fascination?  Sure thing.

I give you all I can gif! Take

A slice of cheesecake.  Celebrate.

I am louder than not in love!

Tough bluff rough enough thereof scrub.
