Turning Leaves (or How to Zen a Yeats-Wordsworth)

What would fall be without turning leaves?
Spring livens and beams fledgling dreams;
Summer burns white bulbs of seeds;
Winter winds clear the streets.
Here: the present memory of yellow leaves:
A voyage to drowsy Byzantium,
Fading into an absent reflection,
But rising-ahh-to breathe.
