Island: Master, can I change?

A sequester, you were!
A harbour, you have been!
A disunite, you are!
A retreat, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
To island I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like isolate
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using insulate

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

Just like the fracas,
they're surprisingly stringent.
Neither false nor sour!
To bruise, blow, thump, biff or blast.
The noise made by the bittern.

Can I fake a metre, committed so crowds might see
Terse didactic summaries, happily imparting, and oh yes evermore free?
Refuge or detach seem all too manifest. But is telling?
Sequester, islet? - or insulate, separate? Damn! I neglected welling!
I reason segregate and certainly sanctuary, but frankly ought I
- state concepts oh - abstracts written from computers spry?

There was a young lad from Rasland,
He needed a word for island.

      No, it's refuge!
That literate guy from Rasland.
