'Pokarekare Ana' - a beatiful love song, written by a homesick soldier, serving in the Maori Battalion during World War I - with it's tale of longing, for home & loved ones immediately touched his fellow countrymen, who adopted the haunting melody as thier own.
It's now a poignient musical touch-stone for any homesick New Zealander.
