Mele are everywhere in the newspapers. 1907.

KA HANU O EVALINA.

1. Homai, na’u e honi aku,
I ka lau aala vabine,
He moani lau liilii,
Ka hanu o Evalina.

He anoi au e honi,
I ka nae ala vabine,
He moani lau liilii,
Ka hanu o Evalina.

2. Hui mala’nu ke aloha,
Ke hiki mai nei welawela,
Ua luhi a maopaopa,
He pali kiekie kelakela.

3. He uwila hiki aumoe,
He pakuikui oloolo,
He kulana mapuna hoe,
Kunewa i ka nui o ka holo.

4. Ua holo ka’u kaona,
Ua ikeia e ka nui manu,
Hookahi no hailona,
Ka puia aala o ka hanu.

[This mele is not preceded by an introductory article, and is given without composer. “Ka Hanu o Evalina” is credited to Kalakaua and Liliuokalani, and this is one of the variants.]
