(i) There be none of Beauty's daughters
With a magic like thee;
And like music on the waters
Is thy sweet voice to me;
When, as if its sound were causing
The Charmed Ocean's pausing,
The waves be still and gleaning,
And the lulled winds seen dreaming:
And the Midnight Moon is weaving
Her bright chain o'er the deep;
Whose breast is gently heaving,
As an infant's sleep:
So the spirit bows before thee,
To listen and adore thee;
With a full but soft emotion,
Like the swell of summer's ocean
(Stanzas for Music by Byron) 
(ii) From the centre
From the nothing
Of not seen
Of not heard,
There comes
A shifting
A stirring
And a creeping forward
There comes
A standing
A springing
To an outer circles,
There comes
An intake
Of breath
Tihe Mauriora!
(From: Potiki by Patricia Grace)
