A birthday, a name song, and never knowing where you will find information, 1891.

[Found in the story: “He Moolelo Kaao No Kamapuaa.”]

Ia wahine hele la o Kaiona,
Wahine hahai alualu Wailiula,
Pua Ohai o ke Kaha,
Uhane kui pua lei o Kamau-a,
Uumi ia iho ke aloha o ke kane,
Ua inaina, ua manawa ino,
Nona ka na hale i puu o Kapolei,
Ke nonoho ‘la no me na wahine o ka ma’o.

[On her 183rd birthday, here is a mele inoa for the princess found in of all places, a story about Kamapuaa. There is a scene where Kamapuaa is coming upon Puu o Kapolei, and the writer interjects: this is the hill about which goes the mele inoa for the deceased princess Pauahi. You never know where you can find information, you just have to look…]

He Moolelo Kaao No Kamapuaa.
