“Who wrote this fiendish ‘Rite of Spring’
What right had he to write the thing,
Against our helpless ears to fling
Its crash, clash, cling, clang, bing, bang, bing?
And then to call it ‘Rite of Spring’,
the season when on joyous wing
The birds melodious carols sing
And harmony's in everything!
He who could write the ‘Rite of Spring’,
If I be right, by right should swing!”
- Boston Herald, 9 Feb., 1924
