Purlieus: Master, can the world change me?

A vicinity, you were!
A boundary, you have been!
A preciosity, you are!
A locality, you will continually be!

To purlieus I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like outskirts
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using resorts

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Can I show a rhyme, published so beings might see
Fully defining allusions, largely nurturing, and oh but divulged free?
Medium or milieu feel way too absolute. But is feather?
Surrounds, media? - or environs, ambience? Darn! I neglected weather!
I ponder precincts and otherwise trimmings, but broadly ought I
- given concepts so - sentences fetched with computers spry?

There was a lad from Bullyard Sound,
And he wanted a word for round.

      But then thought circle!
So smart that dude from Bullyard Sound.
