Land of the Long White Cloud

Land of the Long White Cloud
by Hayley Ann Solomon

Take a sprinkle of our sunshine
Take a whisper of our moonlight
breathe the sweetest of our fresh air
Fair dream land our delight
We are first dawn,
‘ neath star crossed skies

And it’s
in conscience and kindness
that our nationhood lies

Land of long white cloud
you have a glow
silver ferns are our heroes
crystal waters wakas row….

River rafting in the seasons
bunji jumping all good reason
we’re Kapai kiwis with our skis on
mountain snow or summer springs

And our fair free land, it’s home to me
New Zealand we love you.
Let it always be.

Take a little time from sea land
in the hilltops of New Zealand
breathing breath upon all free lands
spreading peace so far away

We are the dawn, ‘
‘neath star crossed skies
And it’s
in conscience and kindness
that our nationhood lies.
May our fair dream isles
rimmed round by sea…
Be kapai and kiwi
forever fair,
and ever free.
