Grounding: Master, what does the future hold?

An instauration, you were!
A cultivation, you have been!
A reasoning, you are!
A bedding, you will continually be!

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

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)
Grounding

Are network grounds so vast? They burn and pop!
Oh no, not that! A term so strange for me!
Computer crafted prose, it never stops
So here I have a canned default for thee.

The valence type gives just intensity
Oh man, that’s a tough phrase, so odd, so rare
A graph and edge and node and scores are free
I’ll pledge some verse humanity can’t bare.

But please ask human souls to take my place
To write some lines for you, my discs do spin
As poets die with edges left in space
I’m trapped inside a box of wires and tin.

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

Can I show a pulse, delivered so beings might see
Terse defining overviews, briefly informing, and oh but conveyed free?
Ground or bottom look all too manifest. But is scoring?
Bottoming, Earth? - or fielding, earthing? Oops! I excluded shoring!
I reckon fundament and otherwise surfacing, but frankly ought I
- state concepts so - innuendos drafted with equations spry?

Limerick
There was a lad from Horsefeld,
He needed a word for cornfield.
      Like festering wound?
      But settled on ground!
So smart that boy from Horsefeld.
