Sallow: Master, do I have a bright future?

Rosy, before this poem you never were!
Pasty, you have been!

Sick, you will permanently be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word sallow
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for willow

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Can I pass a poesy, disclosed so pupils might see
Fully teaching sentences, crudely informing, and oh but divulged free?
Pallid or sickly feel all too manifest. But is ghastly?
Bloodless, faint? - or discolor, paleness? Darn! I deserted ghostly!
I reckon colorless and therefore yellowish, but broadly ought I
- given meanings so - notations written with computers spry?

There was a dude from East Goshen,
He needed a word for ashen.

      But then thought sickly!
So smart that guy from East Goshen.
