Melody’s strict flow,
Colors in cadenced array,
Bound by harmony.
The well-tempered Clavier Bach


Restrained line meets hue, a visual chord,
Each wave a note, precisely scored.
Limitation's law, subtly drawn,
Within each bound, beauty's dawn.

Structured silence speaks in colored sound,
Harmony's discipline, profoundly profound.
Melodic forms, ordered dance,
Chieh's wisdom in every glance.

Elegant constraint sets the theme,
In vibrant quietude, a composer's dream.
Less is ample, space sings clear,
Within the limits, the Tao draws near.
