Humorless: Master, can I become amusing?

Amusing, before creation you never were!
Forbidding, you have been!
Joyless, you are!
Cheerless, you will continuously be!

To humorless I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like serious
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using unhumorous

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

Can I make a pulse, committed so people might see
Terse defining allusions, visibly educating, and oh now imparted free?
Dismal or dreary feel way too manifest. But is fearful?
Cheerless, bleak? - or funereal, mournful? Darn! I deserted tearful!
I ponder miserable and sometimes sorrowful, but rightly ought I
- paste meanings so - innuendos written from equations spry?
