     when needing something like apprehend
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,

     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Can I pass a verse, furnished so people might see
Fully teaching allusions, largely educating, and oh but bestowed free?
Beyond or during seem way too absolute. But is farther?
Crosswise, along? - or overhead, opposite? Oops! I excluded further!
I reason crossways and similarly obliquely, but broadly ought I
