Heke and Papahurihia kept in touch,
(it is said) letters passed
From the time of Okaihau
through Ohaeawai, then after at Tautoro
Papahurihia was with Heke,
either have to do with before Okaihau
or not so long before Ruapekapeka,
that Heke and Papahurihia parted
not long before the last days.
Were there any letters, actually?
: if there were
how much was
sparked by a god
whose nature was fire,
He and Heke, they were both young,
more young than old.
