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.


Come walk with me my starry heart.

Let’s pave the way to fest the part.

I fancy our stories interest.

Chance that our love will build a nest.

Journey with me through the sweetest

Of limelight zealously caress

Into the bottomless depths rubbed

Off the wrong way in you, my love!

My admiration wants your need

To feel, to be loved, to hold me

Through the darkest hours of light!

My stay may or may not be right,

But my love for you grows into

Something beautiful!  Pulled corkscrew

Pushing through on entrée promise

That our déjà vu love comice  

Steadfast beyond comprehension

Or gasping for bruit oxygen

Tenderized meat into dinner

Slabs encrusted with hasten thinkers!
