There are infinitely many possibilities for drawing such a picture with Xy-pic.
I've added to the previous example; so look at it again now.

A template cannot possibly cope with the infinitude of possibilities.
The Xy-pic parsing language is already really quite simple and extremely
flexible. You just need to put some time into understanding its structure.

You should also look at the  \xypolygon  command.
The reference manual has lots of examples.
It integrates well with \xygraph for building nice diagrams based
upon the regular layout of several points.

Hope this helps,
