To terns I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like jaegers
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using skimmers

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

May I show a pulse, furnished so pupils might see
Terse defining notations, visibly imparting, and oh now revealed free?
Gilded or spoofs feel way too manifest. But is boodles?
Scratches, feint? - or spoofing, tricking? Damn! I neglected doodles!
I wonder swindling and sometimes numskulls, but frankly ought I
- blurt concepts so - allusions drafted with computers spry?

Limerick
There was a clever man from Hearns,
And he needed a word for tarns.
      Some glands for the hands?
      But then thought moorlands!
That very clever boy from Hearns.
