Savai’i - (Malifa Voices)

This the land where Moso stept,

and lava crept

where lovers met

to populate our Polynesian shores


This the land where oceans dance

and with their glance

caress, enhance

the daily dose of life-worn chores


This the land where Beauty shines

in palms’ curved lines

the sun reclines

on blue and wistful skies above the water’s roar


This the land secure, serene

where Nature preens

and Customs gleans

her wisdom from the wealth of ancient times and old folklore
