Niuean love poem
Haau a fofoga i loto he fakaata
Fulufuluola lahi ke he haaku a tala ku
Ti, fakaave neke mole
Fakahikuaga haaku "fakavihi e loto kia koe"

Niuean (niue) love poem, for a nice translation into a Polynesian language. The girls of Niue (Savage) live on this coral island isolated in the Pacific, between the Tonga and Cook archipelagos.
Niuean is the language of Niue belonging to the Tongan subgroup of Polynesian languages. The name Niue which means locally "See coconuts", would have been the first word of the navigators arriving from Tonga 2000 years ago. Niuean is a Tongan language, but which also includes elements of Pukapuka, Cook Islands and Samoa. Since the arrival of Europeans, the influence of the English language is increasing.
