This is a slice of the view driving back from Kerikeri. It can feel like a long drive, and on Wednesday I had a poem running through my head as I drove through the green hills and fields.

It comes from the walls of the primary school’s main room, posted among the windows, art, poems, song lyrics, and prayers.

Me piki te huarahi
Ki te tutaki ki a koe
Me whakamahana te ra
I to kanohi
Me haere pai koe

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind always be at your back
May the sun shine
Lightly on your face
May you tread lightly on your way
