A timely mele, 1919.

HE MELE OLIOLI.

Mo’a Unounoo Puna i ke akua wahine,
Mo’a ma-kaali ka ohia o Moeawakea;
Ke nana aku ia Halaaniani,
Lohe mai ka papa ale ka pahoehoe;
Opiopi i ka la o Kukalaula,
Ke hele la i ka nahele o Maukele a!
Pakele ke aloha mai loaa i ka moe,
Aaohe wa, a ua hiki mai oe;
O ka hala ana aku la no ia o ke aloha,
Hala ke aloha naue pu no me ka anoai e!
Ilaila, ilaila wale iho la no a wali ke kino,
Wali wale iho no i ka manao a loko a!
E, he-a hoi mai hoi e!

(Kuokoa, 6/6/1919, p. 3)
