Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term alternating
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for reciprocating

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

May I pass a metre, committed so crowds might see
Fully exalting notations, plainly informing, and oh yet imparted free?
Change or relief look all too manifest. But is backing?
Alternate, alter? - or rotating, changing? Damn! I excluded tacking!
I ponder alternant and sometimes variation, but happily ought I
- state meanings so - notations drafted with equations spry?
