Matariki – 2
by George Sabonadiere

Shoulder to Shoulder,
Eye to eye,
the Stars will show us when time is nigh,
for food to fly and run and swim,
and winter winds to howl and sigh.

To gather and purge,
Our joy will merge,
Our iwi will grow strong,
But sticking together,
No matter the weather,
Is the chorus of our blessed song.

So with Matariki,
we share our mihi,
our sacred voice is heard,
by shining cuckoo far above,
the Matariki Bird.
