He kaioraora

He kaioraora

He rite tonu te tauātia o te motu o Tūhua me te iwi kāinga o Ngāi Te Rangi. I te hokinga mai o te tauā o Ngāti Whakaue i tētahi o ēnei haerenga mūrau kāore ō rātou murunga, nāwhai anō ka hakaina mai e ā rātou wāhine tēnei kaioraora:

Ma wai e moe te tane
Mangere ke te mahi-kai?
He ra te kai ki taua kiri – e!…

E kore e pai ta te tangata
Ka puta ki te riri
Ka aha, ka oho,
Mataku ana te whenua
Ona ana te kiore – e!
