Konia’s kanikau for Paki, 1855.

HE KANIKAU NO A. PAKI.

Kuu kane kaikunane ke aloha,
Mai ko maua wa uuku ka noho ana a hiki i keia manawa,
Aole hoi a’u kane, aole ana wahine,
Oia ko kaua noho ana a hele aku la oe,
Ke kanikau nei au me na keiki a kaua i ko aloha,
He aloha ia oe, e Kuhooheiheipahu,
Auwe no hoi kuu kaikunane mai ka makani o Lele he Maaa,
Mai na ale hulilua o Pailolo,
Ua hele o Kalanihelemailuna i ka hora eha i ka wanaao,
Ua haalele mai nei i ka pili a maua,
Kuu hoa no hoi o ka aina pilikia a kakou i ike ai,
Oia hoi ke Kaona nui ma Honolulu nei,
Ua hele hoi oe me ka makaukau,
Noho au me ka hemahema,
He kaumaha he luuluu he pilikia keia e noho nei,
Noho aku la oe i ka nani mau loa,
A kaua i huli ai me na keiki a kaua,
Uwe helu mai kana kaikamahine o Kalohelani,
Auwe no hoi kuu Makuakane leo ole—a,
Na’u ka olelo malaila wale mai no ia,
Aole no e pau ko’u kanikau ana ia oe no ko makou makua ole—a,
Ua paumako makou i ke aloha ia oe e ka Makua,
I ka make koke ana’ku nei—a,—
Aka o ka ne a ke Keiki Makua, aole ia L.
