Te Kakariki raua ko te Kiore
anonymous
Collected by Charles Davis in the 1830s

Kakariki. --E Kio e.

Kiore. O!

Kakariki. --Piki ake taua ki runga.

Kiore. --Ko te aha taua i runga?

Kakariki. --Ko te kohi pua rakau.

Kiore. --Heaha te pua rakau?

Kakariki. --He Miro, he Kahikatea.

Kiore. --No raro nei hoki taua, e tama e! No te whakaruarua i a taua e tama ra e!

No raro ngatatatahi enei tangata tokorua te Kiore me te Kakariki.

Na, he hē tera, ki te piki rakau kia kainga nga mea o te manu; no reira tera korero.
