Sylphlike: Master, can I become thick?

Willowy, once upon a time you were!
Stocky, you have not been!
Courteous, you are!
Tenuous, you will eternally be!

To sylphlike I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like gentle
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using little

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

Can I pass a verse, proclaimed so pupils might see
Newly pleasing abstracts, somehow informing, and oh yet imparted free?
Subtle or gentle feel all too absolute. But is rackety?
Squeamish, faint? - or scabrous, sensible? Darn! I deserted rickety!
I reckon breakable and otherwise difficult, but happily ought I
- throw meanings so - sentences crafted with computers spry?

      But then thought slender!
That literate boy from Pirlte.
