The Engine of Dreams

it is addressed thusly:
A riddle.
it reads:
The engine of dreams it is more than it seems
Though not heretofore was it invented
To settle the score with all the machines
From which man had lately repented;
A thunderous task, at last to unmask
Its undulant plan, but whom shall we ask --?
Ask not the man had it rented
What few great tragedies had it prevented;
But its power endue whether lately or new
The truth of its uttermost schemes
He will not boast, whether lying or true
For he is the engine of dreams.
