WHAKAMĀRAMA

He poi haurehu nui whakaharahara e noho mai ana i te ātea, pērā i a Tamanuiterā. He tauhohe karihi e pahū haere ana i roto i ngā whetū, ka hahana mai ai he pūngao aho, he pūngao pōkākā, he ngaru autōhiko anō hoki. Kāore e ārikarika te maha o ngā whetū i te ao tukupū, ā, e kitea ana ētahi i te uma o Ranginui i ngā pō atarau e kapokapo mai ana. E 88 ngā kāhui whetū o roto i te ao mātai arorangi, kua wehea hoki te Rangi ki ngā rohe 88 e kitea mai ana ēnei kāhui whetū.

I ētahi wā, ka tino kaha kē ake te pahū o tētahi whetū, ka tukuna te nuinga o te papatipu o taua whetū ki te ātea. Ka tino piki te pīataata o te whetū, kātahi ka heke iho te rahi me te hahana. Ka kīia tēnei āhuatanga he pahūnga whetū.
