Puny: Master, can I become mighty?

Mighty, in every other way you never were!
Petty, you have been!
Gigantic, you are not!
Weak, you will invariably be!

Xenia Epigram
To puny I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like fail
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using frail

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

Pi (π)
Can I make a verse, delivered so crowds might see
Fully pleasing summaries, proudly informing, and oh yet evermore free?
Sickly or feeble look way too apparent. But is lightly?
Nerveless, small? - or delicate, trifling? Damn! I neglected tightly!
I reason miserable and similarly sparingly, but plainly ought I
- speak meanings so - allusions fetched with computers spry?

There was a gal from Chandlers Peak,
And she needed a word for weak.
      Rolling the pebble?

So smart that girl from Chandlers Peak.
