A Gift You Can Not Receive

Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.

English poet Sir Thomas Wyatt wrote the following:

A lady gave me a gift she had not,
And I received her gift I took not.
She gave it me willingly and yet she would not,
And I received it albeit I could not.
If she gave it me I force not,
And if she take it again she cares not.
Consider what this is and tell not,
For I am fast sworn I may not.

What is the gift?
