I disagree. While it contributes to the aesthetic of the page, and can
certainly link visual art and literature in a way that is pleasing to the
reader, if the page is supposed to be a poem, then the painting does not add
useful content to the page for the non-visual reader.

The same image could certainly have useful alternative text in other contexts,
but not in this one.
