A pantoum tribute to my country. Aotearoa is the maori word for New Zealand
Land of the long white cloud
The long lost garden of Eden
We have natures beauty at our door
As the natives sing their dawn chorus

The long lost garden of Eden
Amber sunsets bless the skies
As the natives sing their dawn chorus
Our warriors release a war cry

Amber sunsets bless the skies
Lofty mountains caressed by snow
Our warriors release a war cry
Cheering on our black and silver heroes

Lofty mountain peaks caressed by snow
Picture perfect beaches whisper
Cheering on our black and silver heroes
Silver ferns proudly adorn our chests

Picture perfect beaches whisper
Remaining nuclear free
Silver ferns proudly adorn our chests
Kiwiana at its best

Remaining nuclear free
We have natures beauty at our door
Kiwiana at its best
Land of the long white cloud
