Te Rauparaha and Pohutukawa Blessing

flaxTe Rauparaha Blessing:

Kia hora te marino   /    Let calm be widespread

Kia whakapapa pounamu te moana  /  May the sea glisten like greenstone

Kia tere te karohirohi   /  And the shimmer of the sun

I mua i tou huarahi  /  Dance across your pathway

May the splash of rangimarie peace

the blossom of tumanako hope

the vibrance of harikoa joy and

the warmth of arohanui love

cradle you
