This very much reminds me of EVE's dead robotic body from near the end of MOTHER...
*Robot Eve was demolished and moved no more.
*Examining the wreckage caused music to start
(Sing. a. mel-.o-.dy. of-.....)
*Ninten remembered the tune.
It's a very nice sight to see with that poem (the feeling). This reminds me not of the comments before me but a image I once came across of a old Zaku bot laying in the forest, dead and with Earth covering up what was once a violent war.
Poor Robbie! Seriously, let's forget mechs for a second, this reminded me immediately of the short "Strange playfellow" (AKA "Robbie") by Isaac Asimov. Something like a few years later... still, very cool.
