Music Of The Squares

A poem by Beverly Stock.

The harmonic law of nature,

Essence of all sensation and

Sensorium of eyes and ears,

At long last, are but one.

The rhythm of rhyme and cadence,

Coalesce with Seven Harmonies and melodies,

Combined in the poet’s repository,

As a physiological affinity,

between visuals and sound.

Praise laws that apply to works

Of optic and aural beauty,

As they resonate in idiosyncratic aesthetics.


Poet Notes:

Inspired by-Public Domain Review, Vol. 9, #10, New Essay; Music of the Squares: David Ramsay Hay and the Reinvention of Pythagorean Aesthetics. by Carmel Raz, Research Group Leader at the Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetic. David Ramsay Hay (1828-1856).


A visual and audio example of my inspiration is illustrated in the YouTube Video: Music Squares-Compilation 1.
