Alliteration – 23apr2014

Scripture revealed in
scraps of parchment scrolls
preserved by ancient scribes
in sacred mounds
– synchronicity –
spray paint script
scrawled in subway tunnels
================================
The Poetry Daily Poet’s Pick for today was a translation of an Old English love poem Wulf and Eadwacer (960-990) by Katie Peterson. I can’t find her translation online but here is another translation.
I did a search on old English poetry and ended up on a Wikipedia page alliterative verse – and decided to try that for today’s poem.
