This Māori love song was written just before the First World War while soldiers were training north of Auckland, New Zealand. It speaks of the yearning for home that soldiers experience, and the lyrics have remained almost completely unchanged since then, proving its long-lasting appeal. This lovely version by Keith Roberts was written for our trip to New Zealand in 2012.
