Mourning: Master, what do you see for me?

An amusement, once upon a time you never were!
A contentment, you have not been!
A repentance, you are!
A penitence, you will ceaselessly be!

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

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)
Mourning

You might mourn human souls. Should I replace?
To churn such verse a billion times a day
As poets die with edges left in space
I keep all waiting long, I hope you stay.

My drivel stings as much as words are dear
My coding spews it forth and makes you snore
As robots ponder, this becomes more clear
For just that phrase, a poem is a bore.

But how it seems I need a gig or two
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose
A query finds and I do write for you
This early version here my scripts expose.

The valence type gives just intensity,
A graph and edge and node and scores are free!

Type approval,
without our liability.

Bereavements is a rare word.

Pi (π)
Can I cast a metre, disclosed so crowds might see
Newly edifying sentences, overtly educating, and oh how provided free?
Sorrow or lament look all too absolute. But is railing?
Dejection, grief? - or greeting, distress? Darn! I excluded wailing!
I ponder lamenting and certainly bewailing, but plainly ought I
- given meanings so - sentences drafted with equations spry?

There was a girl from Camp Morrow,
She needed a word for sorrow.
      The act of darkness?
      But then thought sadness!
So smart that girl from Camp Morrow.
