Seed: Master, what will come of me?

A generator, you were!
An author, you have been!
A progeny, you are!
An etiology, you will continually be!

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

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

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Seed

Iambic verse has rules and seeds my pen?
Oh no, not that! A term so strange for me!
The truth be told, it’s clear my work’s not Zen
So here I have a canned default for thee.

In life, we learn that writing, well, is tough
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose
I’m artificial, writing all this stuff
This early version here my scripts expose.

But please ask human souls to take my place
Oh life is long for me, so I won’t quit
As poets die with edges left in space
Requests like this do trip me, I admit.

I sort them quickly, making poets wince,
These scrambled lines don’t hide my ignorance!

Seeds can be many offsprings.
Honestly, are they?
Can they come?

Pi (π)
Can I cast a verse, published so beings might see
Newly inviting notations, frankly informing, and oh but conveyed free?
Kernel or embryo feel all too absolute. But is cropper?
Offspring, grain? - or seedling, particle? Damn! I neglected dropper!
I ponder posterity and sometimes beginning, but happily ought I
- blurt concepts so - sentences drafted with equations spry?

There was a young gal from Camp Reed,
And she needed a word for seed.

      But settled on grain!
That literate gal from Camp Reed.
