Let us wander to the highlands (get into action!)

To the high hills of Huelo (hot!)

There we can come together (out of sight!)

Like the feathers of the ‘O ‘O bird (sure!)

Beautiful from days of old

See the lushness

My mind is enraptured

By the cool, intoxicating water

When mist and rain commences

It sprinkles the mountains

Drenching the edges of

The leaves of the yellow ginger

Cherished is the rain

The gentle rain of the forest

Drenched are the petals

And the leaves of the ginger growing

The sweet sound of the ‘iwi

In the peaceful moonlight

Enhances my delight and desire

For you, my close companion
