Kōrero: Ngā tamariki

He oriori nō Te Tai Rāwhiti

Whakarongo mai ki tēnei waiata oriori nā Hinekitawhiti, he wahine whai mana nō te Tai Rāwhiti, he mea tito mō tana mokopuna mō Ahuahukiterangi nō Ariuru, ki Tokomaru. E karanga ana tēnei waiata i tana mokopuna me ana pānga ki ana karangaranga maha mai i Tokomaru ki Raukokore.

Mau e ki atu, ‘Na te Au-o-Mawake.'
Kia tangi mai ai o tuakana koka,
‘I haramai ra koe nga kauanga i Kaituri, na!
I haramai ra koe nga uru karaka i te Ariuru.
Nahau te mau mai i nga taonga o Wharawhara,
Hai tohu ra mohou, kai haengia koe,
Ko te Paekuru ki to taringa, ko Waikanae ki to ringa,
Hai taputapu mohou, e hine, e!'

(Te Ao Hou 7, vol. 2, nama 3 (Raumati 1954): 60)
