The Ancient History of the Maori, His Mythology and Traditions. Nga-Puhi [Vol. X, English]

Chapter XVI

Chapter XVI

Stay o Muri stay
And guard thy fishing bank at Ahu-riri
And take thy bed lower down
But let that part on which thou rests be soft,
And sit not down to rest
But rather act like Rongo-pu
And lift thy bed
On to cave of Koroki
But take the merest scent
Of food with thee, like that
Which dogs oft only get,
But now the noise of booming
Sounds are heard in cave
Of souls departed would
O Booming (noise)
