Ka Pua Hau o Maleka, difficult to read… 1896.

KA PUA HAU O MALEKA

(This is the first Mele that Victoria Kamamalu composed).

Auhea wale ana oe
E ka Pua hau o Maleka
Ke au nei ka manao
Pehea o Niagara
Kela wai kamahao
Wai halulu i ka moana
Nana i na moku
Lohe aku nei Rusia
Aohe i hopo Ladana
I ka nui o Asia
Hue aku ka moana nui
Laki ka moana Iniana
Ehuehu o Enelani
Ke kowa Setokia
Aiala oe e Parau
No’u o Aina Hau
A ka wai o Norewai
Pau mai kou palena
Ilaila au la oki
Lawe au la Linohau
A ai ka manu iluna
U—hoi o ka ihu ia.
