Mele Inoa for Kauikeaouli, Kamehameha III. 1862.

HE INOA NO KAUIKEAOULI.

Auhea wale ana oe, kapua hau o Maleka,
Ke au nei ka manao, Pehea o Niagala,
Kela wai kamahao, wai halulu o ka moano,
Nene i na moku, lohe aku nei Lukini,
Ua ana ia Kuleke, aohe i hopo Ladana,
I ka nui o Asia, hue a ke kaona nui,
Laki ka moana Iniana, ehuehu Enelani,
Ke kowa o Sekotia, aita oe e palau,
No’u o Ainahau, a ka wai o Nolewai,
Pau mai ko’u palena, ilaila a’u la oki,
Lawe u’a linohau, a ai ka manu iluna,
I kilohi iho kuu hana, he nani o Hudesona,
Kaikuono Papine, mea ua ae ia,
Me oe a ke aloha iwini o ke aumoa,
Auhea wale ana oe, e ka uneune puuwai,
E ke kaukini ma-lo, nana i ue laholio,
Hoomaloe i kuu kino, hooueue i ka moe,
Lana koi kahi manao, halanalana i ka leo,
O ua mea ino nei, he hoouluulu ia,
Keehi pono i ko haka, i luhi lai ko kahu,
A ao luau ai, pau ko aumakua pi kai a kaua,
I ka lihi kai o lalo, eia la he manao,
Kai hiki mai ia nei, e kali iki iho oe,
A hala ae Welehu, ka malama ino ke kau,
Hiki ae la ia Nana, pe oi kahi manao,
Olu ka noho na o ka lani me oe a ke aloha,
Iwini o ke aumoe, i mai nei o Piuta,
Ua hala kou palena, aohe koina oonei,
O kou la luu loli, a lae hao au lohe,
Ilaila ka wahine Ia, nana i nai ka moana,
He ukali aina ahi, i ka lae o Kepohoni,
Aia iho o Palema, ke noho la i ka hema,
Nana e kuhikuhi mai, ka lonitu akau,
Ike ia na degere, na kuea o ka honua,
Alo mai Kapena Kuke, ka noe i Nouaiki,
Ikiiki wale hoi au, i ka lohe pepeiao,
E ake ko’u manao, ka ike ia Panama,
I pau kuu kuhihewa, i ke kai o Inia,
Nopia o Iapana, ke hui me Ualana,
Me oe a ke aloha, iwini o ke aumoe.
