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

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

Pi (π)
Can I pass a metre, committed so pupils might see
Fully didactic summaries, freshly informing, and oh yes conveyed free?
Scared or flinch seem way too apparent. But is dashing?
Graceless, throw? - or reserved, recreant? Darn! I excluded lashing!
I ponder maladroit and certainly transient, but rightly ought I
- crank meanings so - summaries drafted from computers spry?
