Kōrero: Waiata tawhito

He pepe

He pepe

Ko te tūngoungou o te pepe e tāiri ana i te peka o te pōhutukawa. E ai ki ngā kōrero tuku iho a te Māori, ko te aria o Hineraukatauri tēnei, te atua o te puoro. Te āhua nei nā te āhua o te hanga ka puea ake te hanga o te pūtōrino. Kei te Māori anake tēnei momo pū whakatangitangi, ā, he āhua rite ētahi  o ōna tangi ki te reo tangata.
