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

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

Newly pleasant allusions, faintly imparting, and oh now provided free?
Smally or direly seem all too apparent. But is roughly?
Forlornly, dully? - or abjectly, shabbily? Darn! I excluded toughly!
I reckon joylessly and otherwise obscurely, but happily ought I
- crank meanings so - summaries drafted with computers spry?
