rites of spring

when stravinsky shaken-up

by his passionate love

composed ‘le sacre du printemp’

for ballet

for a piece of avant-garde music

a near-riot erupted

also as a concert piece about

the dance of a girl to death

experiments in tonality/metre/

stress/dissonance/basis of russian

folk music

unto the contemp band –

‘rites of spring’/ a post-hardcore

band –

the artist well aware of the limits

of passionate love

is stirred-up by stravinsky’s

orchestral piece

that made patrons jump-up

on their seats and dance

just like folk at a pop-concert

with women starting to strip.

great emotions.

spices of life.

great experiences at times.
