1. [astronomy]  blah blah blah

2. the combining of two feet into a single metrical unit in classical

Those who responded to my request for a word for the blending of sound
and image, thanks. Syzygy is a word from astronomy. In classical Greek
prosody it means the blending of two metrical feet into a single unit.
Synesthesia is, as was stated, "the taste of blue."

I was looking for something that means the sound of the poetry
reproduces the rhythm of the image, as in "leg over leg as the dog went
to Dover," or "roll on thou deep and dark blue ocean roll." It's
probably something very simple and I'm revealing my wretched ignorance
by asking.

Greetings:  The word that weds sound and image is "poetry". LM-SDB.
