Kōrero: Matariki

Kūmara

Hei te paunga o te ngahuru a ia puta ai. Ka tohu a Matariki he aha te wā pai ki te whakatō kai pērā i te kūmara. Mēnā kei te pīataata ngā whetū o Matariki, he tau pai, he tau mōmona, hei te Hepetema whakatōngia ai ngā kai. Heoi, ki te rehurehu, ki te piripiri te āhua o ngā whetū, kei te haere mai he takurua mātao, hei te Oketopa rā anō whakatōngia ai ngā kai.
