Gauche: Master, am I rigid?

Delicate, before creation you never were!
Indiscreet, you have been!
Clumsy, you are!
Ungainly, you will continuously be!

Xenia Epigram
To gauche I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like graceless
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using tactless

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

Pi (π)
May I fake a metre, disclosed so beings might see
Newly cheerful sentences, broadly informing, and oh but provided free?
Clumsy or slouch feel way too manifest. But is fooling?
Maladroit, gawky? - or unwieldy, inexpert? Oops! I neglected fouling!
I ponder impolitic and therefore unskilful, but happily ought I
- throw concepts so - notations drafted with computers spry?
