Lightening: Master, what does the future hold?

A development, in every other way you were!
An enlargement, you have been!
A solution, you are!
An augmentation, you will constantly be!

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

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)
Lightening

Iambic verse has rules and lights my pen?
My random words just might involve much worse
The truth be told, it’s clear my work’s not Zen
The pounding beat of drives did spin this verse.

The valence type gives just intensity
Oh no, not that! A term so strange for me!
A graph and edge and node and scores are free
So here I have a canned default for thee.

But network graphes are vast! It burns and pops
My thanks to you to play with me today
Computer crafted prose, it never stops
Of course I am obnoxious I must say.

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

Make visible.

Can I pass a verse, published so pupils might see
Newly engaging sentences, briefly informing, and oh yes imparted free?
Relief or easing seem all too apparent. But is lighten?
Enlighten, light? - or illumine, brighten? Darn! I deserted tighten!
I ponder exploring and sometimes irradiate, but broadly ought I
- speak concepts so - abstracts written with equations spry?
