Xenia Epigram
Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term arduous
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for strenuous

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

Can I pass a poesy, disclosed so crowds might see
Newly inviting sentences, clearly educating, and oh now divulged free?
Uphill or abrupt seem all too apparent. But is jealous?
Difficult, tough? - or toilsome, exacting? Darn! I neglected zealous!
I wonder laborious and certainly strenuous, but broadly ought I
- crank meanings so - allusions fetched with equations spry?
