Words and Music: Earth the slumbering pūriri

Maori nature ancient kea bird

In the Beginning

Earth Breath on me

Earth the cool breath of life

Earth the slumbering pūriri

Earth the misty valley

Earth the departed sun

Earth the tingling blue sky

Maori nature ancient

Earth the dark sheen of a woman river

Earth the mottling tides tumbling ashore

Earth the sweeping godwits

Earth our home

Earth the giving land

Papatūanuku

Maori nature ancient
