Xenia Epigram
To atoll I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like beside
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using alongside

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

Pi (π)
Can I pass a verse, published so pupils might see
Terse pleasant notations, somehow informing, and oh but divulged free?
Wither or shrink look way too manifest. But is failing?
Atrophied, decay? - or languish, marasmus? Oops! I neglected falling!
I wonder atrophies and similarly withering, but frankly ought I
- found concepts oh - allusions drafted with computers spry?

There was a young gal from Arroll,
She wanted a word for atoll.
      Such as meat tampon?
      But then thought upon!
So smart that woman from Arroll.
