Xenia Epigram
To giraffe I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like tremendous
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using enormous

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Can I pass a verse, proclaimed so people might see
Newly charming summaries, freshly nurturing, and oh how imparted free?
Batten or bellow feel all too manifest. But is roaring?
Barricade, crash? - or Standard, spraybar? Damn! I deserted soaring!
I reason accretion and certainly promotion, but rightly ought I
- given concepts so - notations crafted with computers spry?

There was a girl from Sutherlin,
She needed a word for purlin.

So smart that girl from Sutherlin.
