Austere: Master, do I have a bright future?

Harsh, without a doubt you were!
Lush, you have not been!
Abstemious, you are!
Rigorous, you will invariably be!

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

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

Just like the singles,
they're seriously severe.
Neither warm nor lush!
A murk or obscurity.
Being cruel or brutal.

Can I pass a metre, published so people might see
Terse engaging summaries, perhaps nurturing, and oh but revealed free?
Severe or strict seem all too absolute. But is roughly?
Stringent, stern? - or rigorous, exacting? Damn! I excluded toughly!
I wonder temperate and therefore inclement, but plainly ought I
- state meanings so - abstracts drafted from computers spry?

There was a guy from Fort Revere,
He needed a word for severe.

      But settled on hard!
So smart that guy from Fort Revere.
