“Kaua i ka Nani o Hilo”. 1892.

A MELE FOR HULA.

Kaua i ka nani o Hilo
Ka ua loloku i Hanakahi
A kahi hoi ko’u manene,
Ka meeu hoi o kou hoa.
He ula leo paha na ka iwi,
I kuwa mai la i Haili,
Ilihia i ka leo o ka mamo,
E pua mai la i Olaa.
Ua laa ia pua ia nei,
U nani i ko’u manao,
E ake aku ana e ike.
I na pua lehua i panaewa,
E kiko ia ala e ka manu
E ka oo, hulu melemele.
Nee iho e kaua lani pili,
Hao mai ka makani a he kiu.

Composed by Kolana.
