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.

(298)  THE ONE

I have been searching for you

Since the beginning of time, knew

Eyes shine in many blanched faces.

Your smile and laughter contagious!

All the goodness in my life come

From being with you, my heart thumps

Ever so loud to escapade

My chest in disbelief of fate

Fading away when your presence

Are soul tangible and near! Sense

My lost, I may not cherish you

Cause for concern to approach you,

Then refrain from your truth hide

My feelings for you touch the sky!

My heart longs for you.  Aches for you

Since the day we met, I claim you

Unconditionally for fun!

Eternally to be the one.

I’ve waited my whole life for you!

I’ll die again to be with you!
