Helices: Master, what do you see for me?

A convolution, you were!
A revolution, you have been!
A propeller, you are!
An auger, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
To helices I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like spiraled
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using shelled

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

May I cast a meter, proclaimed so pupils might see
Newly exalting summaries, faintly informing, and oh now bestowed free?
Scroll or volute look way too absolute. But is binding?
Corkscrew, helix? - or tailspin, trephine? Damn! I deserted winding!
I reason spiraling and therefore convolute, but broadly ought I
- throw concepts so - notations crafted with computers spry?

So smart that lady from Felix.
