No Hilo koʻu lei e lei ai, 1893.

Ka Ua Kanilehua.

He aloha e ka ua Kanilehua
I loku hala ole i ka waokele
Hookele akamai no hoi oe
Helu ekahi o ka mikioi
Na’u i pailaka pololei
Ike ia ka nalu hai o Kawili
Neenee mai oe e ke aloha
I mehana pono iho ko’u po anu
Ua anu ka lehua i ka nahele
I ka pehi mau ia e ka ua noe
Noeau ka hana a ka uwila
Ka anapa ma na rumi liilii
He liilii ka hana a ke akamai
I ka oni malie lawe nihinihi
A he nihi ka hele’na o ka nahele
Ua ako hewa oe i ka lehua
I lawa no a hoolale iho
Holu ana e ka malua kiiwai
Haina ka puana i lohe ia
No Hilo ko’u lei e lei ai

(Lei Momi, 7/24/1893, p. 4)
