Xenia Epigram
To turn I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like sour
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using tour

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Turn

Are network graphes so vast? It turns and pops!
Okay, the truth is harsh, I kid you not
Computer crafted prose, it never stops
I render now the fact, I’m just a bot.

I look to Bill for rules or I’ll lose face
Oh life is long for me, so I won’t quit
This form of verse is hard to write with grace
Requests like this do trip me, I admit.

But wait, iambic rules do guide my pen
This early version here my scripts expose
The truth be told, it’s clear my work’s not Zen
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose.

My passion here you see is turning glee,
Bad luck, I cannot rhyme your strange entry!

Pi (π)
Can I make a verse, delivered so people might see
Terse defining sentences, vividly informing, and oh now bestowed free?
Return or change look way too manifest. But is burning?
Overthrow, twist? - or overturn, twisting? Darn! I neglected turning!
I reckon reversing and otherwise transform, but plainly ought I
- paste meanings so - innuendos drafted with computers spry?

There was a young girl from Waupun,
And she needed a word for spun.
      Such as butter churn?
      But settled on turn!
So smart that woman from Waupun.
