TAUPIRI MOUNTAIN - Waikato, New Zealand

In my possession since the 1960s is a recipe book that belonged to
Dorothy Rutherfurd - (RutherfUrd is the correct spelling but nearly all documents for this family have it spelt as RutherfOrd).
I print it as I find it ...

The recipe book was given to me by Dorothy`s sister Marjorie.
It is called
Collected & Edited
HODDER AND STOUGHTON LTD - London - New York - Toronto

1st edition 1914 .. 5th edition Jan 1922
Inside it has hand written:
Dot from John Feb. 1943 - also,
D. Rutherfurd, c/o 19 Waltons Ave Masterton, Wairarapa N.I.N.Z (presumably North Island New Zealand) 1943

* May Byron (May Clarissa Gillington 1861-1936) was the eldest of 4 children to John Maurice Gillington, a cleric, and Sarah Dumville Thorpe.
She wrote many books and was also an artist, illustrating books of others
Her sister Alice Elizabeth Gillington was also a writer and was a pioneer collector of songs from English Gypsies

Inside the cook book is a poem, cut out of a newspaper and taped on. It was written by Dorothy Black, Taupiri. (the date has been cut off).
I wrote to Dorothy Black in 1989 and asked her if she knew Dorothy and Marjory Rutherford but she did not. She said she had not written poetry for many years and that they must have just cut it from a newspaper/magazine.
She wrote this poem (date unknown) about the Taupiri Mountain while she was living in Taupiri, Waikato. She mentions in her letter a number of the 'old identies' of Taupiri like, Kath O'Hearn, the Lovells, Litts, Wallace Moore and Dorothy Button
- When I worte to her she was living in Remuera, Auckland.
Dorothy Rutherfurd's brother-in-law, Len Price, had a half sister, Olive Shaw who married Claude BUTTON... (research continuing whether there is a relationship between him and Dorothy Button of Taupiri)

The poem:
I have seen her in the morning
With the sunlight in her eyes
Bathing in the gathered waters
Where her form reflected lies
Like a veil of eastern lightness
Early mist wreaths slowly rise
Till, revealed in all her beauty
Stands my lady of the skies

I have seen her in the evening
Richer than a pirate`s prize
High, remote, her summit riding
In the ever-changing skies
Slowly fades the gold of sunset
To a deeper amethyst
Till at last she sinks in slumber
In the rising evening mist

I have seen her in the moonlight
Stately, old and very wise
Dreaming, dreaming, in the moonlight
Black against the darkened skies
Gone the ribboned road around her
Gone the quarry river deep
Once again she guards the places
Where the honoured chieftans sleep

At her feet the whares cluster
Where the fires burn and glow
Once again she stirs to listen
To the chants of long ago
Phantom craft are on the river
In the cortege wailing high
Eerie voices laughing, singing
Ghostly shadows slipping by
- Dorothy Black - Taupiri
