Quail: Master, what does the future hold?

A color, before creation you never were!
A shudder, you have been!
A vibration, you are!
An undulation, you will continuously be!

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

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

Just like the Shivers,
they're quiveringly thrilling.
Neither suave nor meek!
To quaver or shake, as sound.
A throb or palpitation.

Can I cede a meter, proclaimed so pupils might see
Fully teaching notations, frankly imparting, and oh but conveyed free?
Flinch or quiver look all too absolute. But is crumpet?
Partridge, wince? - or bobwhite, daughter? Oops! I neglected trumpet!
I reason tailpiece and certainly legislate, but rightly ought I
- given meanings so - summaries drafted with equations spry?

      No, it's retire!
That literate lad from Lake Clinch.
