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.

(300)  The End Where It Begins

I can leave you the freedom to

Give 300 reasons to live

With my undying love for you

As I chariot to the end

Of time to find your heart and soul!

Your mind invites me to control

My callus emotion in search

Of a deeper love forever

Etched in our place and time capsule!

We’re destine to be together!

Through the good times and bad times,

Through forgiveness and forgotten,

In covid sickness and in health,

We have come together to dealt

With or without the pain, I must

Suffer stabs and cramps and curls just 

Won’t leave!  Oh, my head trauma rings

To spend a lifetime with you cling

To side if I rhyme your rosehip,

Bestir by your true beauty gifs!
