HAWAIIAN MELE

(That are not known to the generation of this time.)

Maikai ke kuahiwi nani na mauna,
Ka aula wai o Namolokama;
E o ana ia Mamalahoa,
I hoohoa i hoa Kupakoili.
Ka lihau wai anu o Maunahina,
Ua auneki i ka la’i me he polope’a la,
Ka-kakaha me he lupe la i ka malie.
Oiaio oia paha !

_____

Aia la o ka noe o Alakai,
Ua haanolu wale i Hauailiki;
Ka holahola wai a ka Lupua,
Pupu aku la i Ko’ialana.
Ka maka o ka lehua a ka manu,
Ua noho aloha wale i Kalaukipapaaola,
Ua haanou wale i ka ua ka nahele,
Ke kahelahela o Lonokoiuiu.
Oiaio oia paha e!

Nana aku o ka lae o Kalaau,
Hele a nonohe ka pua i ka wai;
Ka aulii halalii a ke kohekohe,
Ka anapau a ka ohu i ka laau,
Paa Waialeale naue ole i ka makani,
I haka uliliia Kamelekula,
I holoa linoia luna o Kawaikini,
Ka palahinu me he hulumamo la i ka la,
Hana Kemamo i ke ao humu papale kapu no Hulaia,
Ma ke kihi poohiwi o Keaolewa
Oiaio oia paha e pa wai au a e kepa kaua.

O ka mikioi malaila pu me ka maemae,
Aohe mea maikai nui i ka lokoino;
Ma ka hana mau ana e pili mai ai ka lako.
O hoonawaliwali hahai ka hemahema.
Ma keaha e lilo ai ke dala i mea waiwai?
Ma o ka loaa o na mea i makemakeia.

_____

Aia i Kapalama ka’u aloha,
O ka mu’o launiu opiopio.
