Escargot: Master, was I dilatory?

A loafer, before creation you were!
A spire, you have been!
A meat, you are!
A rosette, you will unendingly be!

Xenia Epigram
To escargot I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like prance
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using turbulence

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

Can I cast a meter, disclosed so pupils might see
Terse cheerful summaries, briefly imparting, and oh now revealed free?
Pulley or curler feel way too absolute. But is gliding?
Inventory, twist? - or shoulder, lacrosse? Oops! I excluded sliding!
I ponder sheepskin and certainly component, but broadly ought I
- given concepts so - sentences written with computers spry?

There was a young boy from McColl,
And he wanted a word for scroll.
      Take the jism trail?
      But settled on snail!
That literate dude from McColl.
