Towards Another Summer by Janet Frame


This book was written in 1963 but was only be published after her death, according to her own wish since she considered too personal to be published when she was still alive.

This book reminded with plenty of details of our visit to New Zealand in December 2009, an unforgettable trip.

Page 243, from Come oh Maidens :

Come oh maidens welcome here
You in all the world most dear
Sweetest voices draw you near
Come oh maidens, come

Gaily our canoe shall glide
Flowing o’er the rolling tide
Twirling pois shall lay beside
‘Til we reach our home.
