He pureraki e hae ana ki Hananui
He kohara kei Rarotoka
He karu me Otewao e papaki ki Kawhakaputaputa
Haere whatukarokaro atu ra e te hakui morehu
Nahau ka tatai korero i kohikohi
Kia patu ai te tarika o te takata
E hiahia ana ki te matau
Ko wai
No hea
Dawn light breaks upon Hananui
Lightning strikes above Rarotoka
A wave like those of legend breaks upon Te Waewae Bay
Wise man you have been taken now lost from us
'Twas you who gathered the knowledge of the past
And made sure that we all had access to it
And those who hungered now know
Who they are
Where they are from

Sorry to hear of the passing of keith as he was a friend from earlier years when I lived in Bluff. Had a great time on Stewart Island with him and his Cousins as well in 1963.I did meet up with him a couple of years ok and had a great chat. This is really cherished.
