Te Maunga And Te Moana - Poem by Helen Gaudin

My brother the mountain
My brother the guardian
My brother, watches over me

My sister the sea
My sister the guide
My sister, brings the world to me

His strength; holds me up
Her fluid nature; engages my mind
His strength; lets me go forth
Her ebbing tides; releases my spirit
His strength; protects me
Her abundant energy; liberates me
Te Maunga is the mountain, Te Moana is the sea
