Atrophying: Master, was I shrunken?

A blast, before all peoples you were!
A rust, you have been!
A development, you are not!
A stunt, you will persistently be!

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

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 pulse, delivered so pupils might see
Newly engaging notations, forever imparting, and oh yet imparted free?
Waning or shrink look all too manifest. But is pasting?
Atrophied, pined? - or decaying, withered? Damn! I deserted wasting!
I wonder atrophies and certainly dwindling, but frankly ought I
- state concepts oh - summaries fetched with equations spry?

There was a young boy from Ashbank,
And he wanted a word for shrank.
