     when needing something like progressive
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,

     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

Newly teaching allusions, thereby educating, and oh yet bestowed free?

Gradually, tardy? - or sluggish, backward? Darn! I deserted stopped!
I wonder leisurely and sometimes unhurried, but frankly ought I
