Reincarnation

it is addressed thusly:
A thought.
it reads:
Reincarnation, of which the poets spoke
May seem to us a foolish joke
And though ne'er transmigrated will I be
My son's the reincarnation of me.

  1. It's pretty neat how the word "reincarnation" has in it, "incarnation". So "reincarnation" is "to be embodied again." Not in the sense that we will be cast in a different body in the next life, but that our children are made in our likeness, so we can see ourselves in them.
