Ephemeral: Master, can I become abiding?

Durable, before time you never were!
Casual, you have been!
Transitory, you are!
Perfunctory, you will always be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word ephemeral
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for temporal

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

they're temporarily brief.

Pi (π)
May I pass a metre, committed so pupils might see
Fully didactic overviews, vividly nurturing, and oh but imparted free?
Casual or lonely seem way too apparent. But is slicing?
Ephemeral, brief? - or fleeting, temporal? Oops! I deserted sliding!
I reason temporary and otherwise momentary, but happily ought I
- state concepts so - summaries fetched with computers spry?
