(Let us be determined to speak te reo Māori!) 
 
My mouth waters for te kai a te rangatira 
the food of chiefs, which is kōrero, speech 
 
My noble language 
My precious treasure bequeathed from my ancestors 
 
Marvelling at its strength to endure 
 
The spirit to speak te reo will not diminish 
 
Let us be determined to speak te reo Māori! 
Rangi: Something Stupid.
