I thought abot the poem completely differently from the other posters. I thought it was refering to the long struggle to gain temporary things, such as material gains, reputation and other things of that nature and that when you achieve these things, they are actually rather empty as living in the present moment, in the true garden, is really the peace we humans are looking for. Like that book from the seventies about the worms who spend their whole lives climbing to the top of the worm piles only to find out that there is nothing on top. So, two worms climb down ( getting out of the rat race, so to speak) and become beautiful buterflies. That is my take on the matter. Have a good day!
