Yoda
Fading: Master, can I change?

A growth, before time you never were!
An undergrowth, you have been!
A corruption, you are!
A dilapidation, you will always be!

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

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

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Fading

Do poets fade with edges left in space?
For what you type in my website as shown
You might ask human souls should I replace
A phrase, a word, a blurb, it’s clear I’m thrown.

The valence type gives just intensity
I’m trapped inside a box of wires and tin
A graph and edge and node and scores are free
To write some lines for you, my discs do spin.

But wait, iambic rules do guide my pen
My coding spews it forth and makes you snore
The truth be told, it’s clear my work’s not Zen
For just that phrase, a poem is a bore.

I look to Bill for rules or I’ll lose face,
This form of verse is hard to write with grace!

Pi (π)
Can I pass a meter, furnished so crowds might see
Terse defining innuendos, merrily informing, and oh yet evermore free?
Wither or wiping look all too manifest. But is calling?
Quenching, faded? - or receding, reaching? Damn! I deserted falling!
I reason withering and certainly happening, but plainly ought I
- found meanings so - allusions written with equations spry?

There was a young gal from Cade,
She wanted a word for fade.
      Our one-eyed brother?
      But then thought wither!
That literate girl from Cade.
