Sweet mele aloha, 1919.

KUU PILI I KA UA NAULU.

Hooheno keia no kuu pili,
Kuu leimomi o ka ua naulu;
I ulu a kupu i ka la hiki,
A mohala i ke kai malino o Kona.
O Kona i Kailua ua kaulana,
O ke onehanau o kuu aloha;
No Kona ka opua kukilakila,
Hooipo i ka luna o Maunaloa.
He aloha na kuahiwi ekolu,
A Hawaii a e haaheo nei;
Haaheo ka opua i haliia mai,
Noho i ka luna a o Kaaliwai.
Ilaila hui kino me ka inuwai,
Ka makani aloha o kuu aina;
Aina Niihau i ka la weli,
E loku ia nei e ka ua naulu.
Hooulu ia e ke konalani,
A mohala i ka ua kualau;
Ua kini ua mano lau ke aloha,
I lei kahiko no kuu kino.
E lei no au i ke aloha,
Me a’u mau lei ponimoi;
O oe kuu lei a i poniia,
A kau ka inoa M. W. K.
Hoohihi ka manao me ka makemake,
Ina uluhua noho i ka hapapa;
He aloha Kamalino i ka ehukai,
I ka home kakela o kuu aloha.
O oe a owau kau i ka hano,
Me na lei eiwa a kaua;
Ua hele mai nei loko a liua,
A poluluhi au i ko aloha.
Kuu hoa i ke one o ke awaiki,
A he iki ko aloha eha nei kino;
O oe kuu lei i lei a lei,
I lei rose na’u no ka ua naulu.
Uilani na hana a kuu aloha,
I ka moe hooipo me Niolopua;
Hea aku no au o mai oe,
Ekolu no pua lawa kuu lei.
Haina ka puana no kuu aloha,
He hapa Hawaii hapa Niihau;
Haina ka puana no kuu inoa,
Milimili na ka la welo i Lehua;
Haina ia mai ana ka puana,
Kuu home kamalino i ka ehukai.
