A beautiful Figgs composition for his brother Leleiohoku, 1872.

Kuu Lei Lilia.

Melody—Lordly! Lordly! Swell.

Oi ala kuu Lei Lilia,
O nei ano ahiahi,
He nanahe ke pili ia,
Me ka lau lahilahi.

Oia ala ka’u kaunu,
I ke kai wa malino,
He welo na ka hae kalaunu,
E kohu ai nei kino.

A he wai kapi i ka pali,
Wai kili huna a ka manu,
Na ka iwi polena i hali,
Wai laahia o ka hanu.

E ke anu koni nei,
E ka hau kololio,
Owau ka i punihei,
I ka ia la hokio.

Auhea wale ana oe,
Ke oho maiewa o ka palai,
Ua pulu i ka ua noe,
Ke luhe nei la i ka wai.

He iniki olu ka ia ‘la,
E lokuloku i ka ili,
He meheu no ka io, a mala,
Lehiwa wale hoi ke pili.

Nawai oi ala e piliwi,
He kale na ka ale loa,
He pipi kaulua na kiwi,
He uli na ka heepuloa.

E hoi no au e pili,
Me ka lai o ke kaona,
I wai kilihe i ka ili,
Ka wahine o Kaiona.

No William Pitt Leleiohoku Kalahoolewa o Kaleiopapa.

He inoa keia e Hoku—e,
Pua lei aloha a Anoiu—e,
Nani wale kuu ipo Anolani—e,
Ua nohi uli wale i ka la—e,
Ka maka mohala o ka lehua—e,
Ka nonohi ukulii o ka pua—e,
I pu-a i ka uka o Malama—e,
Ahi awela no Heeia—e,
Kohaihai pua i ka uka—e,
O ke oho laulii o ke koa—e,
Maholehole wale oia la—e,
Ka awihi lihilihi a ka maka—e,
O ka maka kai ike hauna wale—e,
O no no e ka puu kuhikuhi—e,
I ka wai ohelo ohelo—e,
O ka ua noe ia i ka poli—e,
E halia mai nei ke aloha—e,
Aulii oiala oiala—e,
Ka hiwahiwa a loko e piana—e,
Kuu kihei pili mae ole—e,
He aloha—e kaua—e.

20th birthday of Prince Leleiohoku, 1875.

Birthday of the Heir Apparent.

On this coming Sunday, the 10th of January, that is the birthday of Prince W. P. Leleiohoku, and it will be the twentieth year of his life. He was born on the 10th of January, 1855, on the day of the funeral of King Kauikeaouli, and for that reason he was named Kalahoolewa. From what we hear, that day will be celebrated as a holiday [la kulaia]; however, because it falls on the Sabbath, the celebration will be postponed until Monday, that being the 11th of January of this year; and this will be the first time that his birthday will be widely celebrated, as we respectfully give commemoration to the Heir Apparent in place of his Elder Brother Monarch who has left for foreign lands. With feelings of hope, we wish that the holiday will be celebrated all over the nation suitably.
