    Reflection on Planting a Sequoia by Dana Gioia The poem is narrated by a father who is mourning the death of his child through the planting of a sequoia tree.

In his hands, the father holds a small sapling wrapped with the umbilical cord of his demised son, who did not live long enough to grow up and become prosperous in life. In a similar way, the sequoia tree, when aged, bears no fruits. Thus,...
