"Sure to bring tears to the eyes of Kiwis far from home, "Pokarekare Ana" is a traditional New Zealand love song. It was probably communally composed about 1914. Song-writer Paraire Tomoana, who polished up the song in 1917 and published the words in 1921, wrote that it emanated from the North of Auckland and was popularised by Māori soldiers who were training near Auckland before embarking for the war in Europe."
