Roto Ātaahua (Beautiful Lake). Your small waves crashing against the banks were the children run and play. Schools of ngohi (fish) swim peacefully as whānau jump from the small cliff on your bay.

Your mana (power) is under-estimated, as the ones who know you keep you close to their manawa (hearts), and families come to you like a flock of manu (birds). You are truly whakamiharo (incredible) Roto Ātaahua, and you will always have a place in my manawa.
