Not judged in reference,
—kindred spirits they dance

The words when spoken,
  notes and palettes enhance

The music enlivens,
  what phrases will say

While a painting embodies,

Who sees not the harmony,
  but comparisons lie

As true art travels skyward,
  enjoined hand in hand

To the source of its power,
  where together they stand
