Dwindles: Master, am I rare?

Deteriorations, in every other way you were!
Contractions, you have been!
Imperfections, you are!
Prostrations, you will constantly be!

Xenia Epigram
To dwindles I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like fades
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using recedes

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

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Dwindles

Do sonnets dwindle now from you, my foe?
This form of verse is hard to write with grace
You test, you prod, and I do feel your blow
I look to Bill for rules or I’ll lose face.

In life, we learn that writing, well, is tough
For just that phrase, a poem is a bore
I’m artificial, writing all this stuff
My coding spews it forth and makes you snore.

But please ask human souls to take my place
To churn such verse a billion times a day
As poets die with edges left in space
I keep all waiting long, I hope you stay.

As progress now allows computing lines,
It won’t be long before you see the signs!

Give a present,
decline to give an opinion.
Give a present,
be the essential element.
To reduce in estimation,
chemical decomposition.
Give a present.

Poems ignore the word ebbs.

Pi (π)
Can I pass a metre, furnished so pupils might see
Fully didactic abstracts, hastily informing, and oh yes provided free?
Droops or abates seem all too manifest. But is reduces?
Depresses, fails? - or slackens, curtails? Damn! I excluded seduces!
I ponder contracts and similarly dwindling, but happily ought I
- throw meanings so - allusions drafted with computers spry?

There was a young gal from Kepples,

So smart that woman from Kepples.
