Always Beginning

To This May
by W.S. Merwin, from Present Company

Present Company They know so much more now about
the heart we are told but the world
still seems to come one a time
one day one year one season and here
it is spring once more with its birds
nesting in the holes in the walls
its morning finding the first time
its light pretending not to move
always beginning as it goes
