“Hooheno Keia.” 1891.

HE MELE.

Hooheno keia no pua Melekule
Lei mae ole ia he koiikoi,
O oe ka ia e kuu aloha
Nowelo malie i ka pili poli
O Maile Laulii o ke kuahiwi
O Maile Kaluhea kuu hoa ia
Mai puni hei oe i ke Tiele
A he pua nani ia a he mae wale
Alawa iho au o ke telepona
Honehone malie i ka iwi-hilo
Hea aku makou o mai oe
O ka pua Melekule kou inoa
Haina ia mai ana ka puana
Ka huila wai o Hanahanapono.
