This is for a project I am working on, but I thought I would share this little poem in its rough form about the Analytical Engine.  This is not yet set in stone, criticism and comments welcome.

Babbage's Dream

I close my eyes
and it is there before me
turning, in its glory.

The Store holds my numbers
while the Mill grinds its calculations,
The Ingress and Egress connecting them.

I will feed it cards,
punched like Jacquard
I weave not threads of yarn, but threads of logic.

The Engine of my design is there!
Just beyond my grasp, look and you will see it too!
Thank God, Calculations Executed By Steam!
