"Ia Ora Na"
By Fabrice Charleux
Polynesian people welcome its visitors with "ia ora na" and with a flower Lei, just as they welcome a brother with his kindness and goodness to them in their land. The Lei they ’re making is the Lei of Life because of its fragrance. Put it to your and you will have eternal life. Just pick one! Flower traces its way, such as water flowing here and there, from a green pasture to another, and from a lagoon to another. Ia Ora na, to all things, all men, and to the goodness of the earth and the ocean.
