Matariki poem

On Tuesday a person called Darren came over to help us write a poem about Matariki,he shared 2 of his poems to us and it was also my favorite part too.

Matariki is the year of celebration
Of joy,
Of harvest,
Of cooking and preserving food
It is about the 7 stars shining brightly
In the northern east sky
About 7 beautiful sisters
And 7 handsome boys
A legend affected by the 7 sisters
now the 7 sevens stars of matariki
Which is celebrated through  
Singing,dancing to lively music
Weaving and also telling stories
About our ancestors  
Also when the whanau get together
And also about having fun together
