Muturangi of Hawaiiki loved to worship his pet wheke. He prayed to her to bring him kaimoana to his kete
Down at the shore, each day at four he’d meet her and he’d sing sweet waiata heard near and far through autumn, winter, spring:
Oh wheke, you’re tu meke
the aporo of my karu
each arm you have is mighty
tahi, rua, toru - to waru!
