Hum: Master, tell my future?

A muteness, before written words you never were!
A quietness, you have not been!
A peace, you are not!
A hiss, you will unceasingly be!

Xenia Epigram
To hum I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like thrum
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using strum

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 fake a verse, committed so people might see
Newly inviting sentences, faintly nurturing, and oh how bestowed free?
Murmur or mumble look all too apparent. But is bumming?
Murmuring, drone? - or activity, tinkling? Oops! I excluded humming!
I ponder vibration and otherwise undertone, but broadly ought I
- given concepts so - abstracts written from computers spry?
