Poise: Master, what does the future hold?

An equanimity, once upon a time you were!
An insecurity, you have not been!
An assuredness, you are!
A calmness, you will eternally be!

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

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)
Poise

Can it be that your spelling drives my daze?
I poise them quickly, making poets wince
Levenshtein, your magic will clear the haze
These scrambled lines don’t hide my ignorance.

My patience long, so wait for me to be!
Oh man, that’s a tough phrase, so odd, so rare
To read, then write and be for all to see!
I’ll pledge some verse humanity can’t bare.

But I will bore you now, just wait and find
To write some lines for you, my discs do spin
As random thoughts my words can grate, can grind
I’m trapped inside a box of wires and tin.

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

Can I pass a meter, disclosed so pupils might see
Newly edifying allusions, clearly informing, and oh but divulged free?
Aplomb or poised feel way too absolute. But is portage?
Equipoise, hover? - or attitude, coolness? Damn! I neglected postage!
I ponder composure and similarly balancing, but broadly ought I
- blurt meanings so - innuendos written with computers spry?

Limerick
There was a young gal from Foise,
She needed a word for poise.

So smart that woman from Foise.
