Tahua

Ka pāorooro kei raro i te tio o te hapū o te moana, kei tua i te paerangi.
Ko ngā atua o te Moana, ko Tangaroa rāua ko Hinemoana e whakahoki kōrero atu, ā, ka huri te tai.
Ka huri te tai, ka rewa te tio, ā, ka rapu a Te Kāunga i a Te Hira.
Engari he tere, he atamai hoki ia. Ka huna ia i te wao nui a Tāne, whāngai ai i āna tamariki.
He wāhi āio i roto i ngā hurihanga pōturi, i ngā au nunui.
Pērā i a Māui, ka whakapōturi tātou i a tātou ka wātea mai he wā mō te whakaaroaro.
Ko te waiata a Hira e tohu ana ki a tātou kia kāti te mahi! … whakarongo … kia aumārire te noho i roto i ngā aneatanga o te tangata.
