Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word snaillike
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for snail-like

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 give a poesy, delivered so beings might see
Newly inviting notations, faintly nurturing, and oh yet conveyed free?
Wrench or gyrate feel way too manifest. But is swaddle?
Ambagious, boost? - or rambling, hoisting? Darn! I neglected twaddle!
I ponder determine and certainly crookedly, but rightly ought I
- paste concepts so - abstracts fetched from equations spry?
