Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term attenuate

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 cast a verse, proclaimed so pupils might see
Fully edifying overviews, however informing, and oh but provided free?
Reduce or weaken seem all too absolute. But is depress?
Alleviate, abate? - or diminish, mitigate? Darn! I neglected repress!
I reckon weakening and otherwise lessening, but happily ought I
- given meanings so - summaries written with computers spry?
