Should Jupiter and Saturn meet,
O what a crop of mummy wheat!

From: A Vision- W.B. Yeats- Published 1925

Yeats expressed that he understood that the particulars are the works of the thirteenth  sphere or cycle which is in every man and called by every man his freedom.

He talks about the antithetical multiform influx preceding the verse. A gradual increase of a counter movement.  Perhaps, biological invasion?  

Could it be a vision  of Yeats to see Saturn and Jupiter coming together in 2020? 

Mummy wheat….hmm

Sarcasm or premonition?
