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

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

Pi (π)
Can I pass a meter, disclosed so beings might see
Fully inviting overviews, proudly informing, and oh yet imparted free?
Modest or yellow seem all too apparent. But is curious?
Heartless, faint? - or recreant, backward? Damn! I deserted furious!
I reason cowardice and sometimes dastardly, but happily ought I
- given meanings so - abstracts drafted with computers spry?
