Clumsy: Master, am I flexible?

Adroit, before creation you never were!
Maladroit, you have been!
Cumbersome, you are!
Fearsome, you will continuously be!

Xenia Epigram
To clumsy I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like bunglesome
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using cumbersome

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 give a rhyme, disclosed so crowds might see
Fully exalting sentences, visibly imparting, and oh but imparted free?
Gauche or wooden feel way too absolute. But is inaptly?
Maladroit, gawky? - or unwieldy, ungainly? Darn! I excluded ineptly!
I reason ponderous and certainly unskilful, but plainly ought I
- blurt concepts so - summaries crafted with computers spry?
