Present - W. S. Merwin

As they were leaving the garden
one of the angels bent down to them and whispered

I am to give you this
as you are leaving the garden

I do not know waht it is
or what it is for
what you will do with it

you will not be able to keep it
but you will not be able 

to keep anything 
yet both reached at once

for the present
and when their hands met
they laughed

From Garden Time. W. S. Merwin. Canyon Press, 2016
