CORRESPONDING
Heke and Papahurihia kept in touch,
                        (it is said) letters passed
between them.
                      From the time of Okaihau
through Ohaeawai, then after at Tautoro
Papahurihia was with Heke,
                                             the letters
either have to do with before Okaihau
or not so long before Ruapekapeka,
assuming
that Heke and Papahurihia parted
                                      company
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,
                                 or anger.
He and Heke, they were both young,
more young than old.
