Created by

Jacob Breeden

63 backers pledged $2,780 to help bring this project to life.

Another poem.

Just another taste of Hunter's work:

RAINAISSANCE

Born again to love,

born again to die;

born again to live on earth

springing sprit to the sky!

Born again with a poem,

born again with a child;

born again with a storm of tears

and born again with a smile.

Born again with friendship,

born again with dreams,

born again when “enemies” send

our tolerance to extremes.

Born again in laughter,

born again in joy;

born again when we up-end

despair in a girl or boy.

Born again in freedom,

yes freedom’s a very high birth;

someday we’ll really know freedom

when hunger is gone from the earth.

Born again to help,

born again to greet,

born again and again and again

when we truly learn to relate

to the being of our planet,

to the being of our Lord,

to the being of our fellow-kind

reborn in the birth of the word.

Born again to love,

born again to die;

born again to live on earth

springing sprit to the sky!

      Puts a whole new spin on the phrase "born again...." How refreshing!
