I just came on here because I really wanted to hear Hone read (or perform perhaps) his "No Ordinary Sun". Which I highly recommend doing as this is the only place on the internet I found it.
For any other seekers it is at about 4:20 into the second part and it is very beautiful to hear.
Thank you for making this accessible.

I really liked his poem friend.

An insightful view into the world of an extraordinary man...The almost casual non-intrusive style is like sitting on someones shoulder and just watching and listening to 'no ordinary son of ours'..He is not a rugby legend or a leading business man..we are in the presence of what it is to be an evolved human being in New Zealand..against the back drop of 'satisfaction with animal aspirations' shelter and warmth is an artistic a beacon ..that all teenagers instinctively are moths to a lamp.
