Kua tanumia te parāoa i hoatu ki uta

  • Te Whanganui-ā-Tara

Ka hura te moana uha, ka hura te moana kore.

Ka toto ngā tai o Paraparaumu i te parāoa nei, ko hou tina, ko hou taiki te ripia e Te Papa Atawhai mō ōna reikura.

Whakahotu nuku, whakahotu rangi, he ripo, he ripo hau. 

He taketake, he huru manu, te moana i rohia.

E meatia ana, i mate kau noa te parāoa pūru nei i te moana i mua i tana paenga ki uta i te ata hāpara o te Rāapa.

Ko te whakapae, ko te tipua koroua rawa tēnei kua pae ki konei, he 15 mita te roa, he 40 tana te nui, kei te takiwā o te 60 tau te pakeke.

He paenga rangatira.

He rite ki ngā tohorā katoa kua pae ki uta i tēnei takiwā, kua whakaingoatia te parāoa nei e te hau kāinga, arā ko Te Uruhi.

Haramai ana me te ngaru nui, tuaina ki te toki. 

He onepū, ki te onepū, he rehutai ki te rehu tai.  Ko ngā toenga o Te Uruhi i nehua inanahi nei ki tētahi wāhi whakatetonga i te tātahi nei, kua whakarāhuitia, ko te hauora o te tangata te take.
