Genie In a Bottle:

The first wish is one of desire

gold & silver leaf a crown to inspire

a sense of pride, a sense of mana

this gift is for you my greatest lover.

Secondly, I say unto thee

grant me a necklace of emeralds, diamonds

opals & beads

greenstone tiki a pounamu gem,

black & purple paua pearls,

Aotearoa finest none other than them.

My third and final wish; is to be together

as a bird is to a feather

like two dove’s flying on high for ever

never to part, no never.
