Homage to Ada Lovelace by Patricia Borlenghi

Homage to Ada Lovelace

The Enchantress

Of numbers;

Chanter of chants;

Hunter of bears.

Each tear tears

Her tresses.

Brasses burnt.

Anteaters eaten, eat

The trees,

Rent

The branches,

Trench

The ranches.

Beach

The beaches.

Teachers

Enchant

Then

Entrench.

Cheaters

At chess

Numb bums.

Numb chests

Benumb.

Bats bet,

Cats chat,

Rats retch, then

Eat buns.

Horses canter,

Mares rant,

Carers care.

Mores more

Enchanters charm,

Charmers enchant.

Cant she can’t.

Morse

Secret secrets.

But the Enchantress

Teaches

Numbers…
