Mele inoa for Kilauea lighthouse, 1914.

KILAUEA LIGHTHOUSE SONG.

Kaulana e ka a o ke kukui la,
Ma na aekai a o Kauai.
Ku’i aku e ka lono puni na moku,
Ua a ka uwila i Kilauea.
Na ia hana i komo mai ia’u la,
E naue i ka aina malihini.
Kamahao lua ole i kau ike la,
Ka niniu powehi a ke aniani.
Aniani na hana a ke akamai la,
Ahuwale na pali, na kualono.
O ka hao a ka ua me ka makani la,
Kikoni i ka ili o ka malihini.
Nihinihi e ke ala i ka’u ike la,
Ka uwea holu i ke kumu o ka pali.
Akahi hoi au a ike pono la,
Kauai Hemolele i ka malie.
He aloha ia no o Mokuaeae la,
Hooipo ana me ka ihu o ke kai.
Haina ia mai ana ka puana la,
Eha olapa ana i ka minuke.
Haina hou ia mai ana ka puana la,
Ipukukui olapa puni na moku.

Hakuia e D. P. Haleamau.
