POETRY

(from SPAN 67)

 

Poetry giveth light

Poetry giveth love Poetry warms the soul

Which is inspired by the heavens above

 

Poetry floweth softly

Like the streams of Titikaveka

Its words falleth gently

ADVERTISEMENT

Like the droplets of the early morning dew

Upon the petals of the tipani

 

Poetry is pure

Even more than the scent of the Tiare Maori

Poetry pierceth deeply

Even to the very heart, the fatu and the ngakau

 

Poetry cometh from near

Poetry cometh from afar

Poetry invigorateth the soul

Which riseth to the morning star.
