Willful: Master, am I rigid?

Obdurate, before time you were!
Polite, you have not been!
Complaisant, you are not!
Errant, you will always be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word willful
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for purposeful

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Willful

Can willful words today involve much worse?
This early version here my scripts expose
The pounding beat of drives did spin this verse
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose.

I keep all waiting long, I hope you stay
Oh no, not that! A term so strange for me!
To churn such verse a billion times a day
So here I have a canned default for thee.

But please ask human souls to take my place
My thanks to you to play with me today
As poets die with edges left in space
Of course I am obnoxious I must say.

It won’t be long before you see the signs,
As progress now allows computing lines!

Willful

To consider,
carefully thought out in advance.
To consider,
clear green flag and not in holder.
The principle of repentance,
refer to as a reference.
To consider!

Pi (π)
Can I make a pulse, delivered so pupils might see
Terse cheerful overviews, crudely informing, and oh but revealed free?
Wilful or mulish look way too absolute. But is haughty?
Obstinate, heady? - or stubborn, perverse? Damn! I excluded naughty!
I wonder pigheaded and therefore voluntary, but happily ought I
- given concepts so - abstracts written with computers spry?

So smart that girl from Lake Hayward.
