Sweet Hilo mele by “Pilialoha,” 1914.

HE LEI NO KE ONAONA.

Nani wale hoi kuu ike ana,
I ka uluwehiwehi o Reeds Bay;
Home aloha a ka malihini,
Hoolaukanaka i ka leo o ke kai.
Akahi hoi au a ike iho,
I ka nowelo ae a ke aloha;
E hapai ae nei i ka waimaka,
Puluelo ka lihilihi o ka lehua.
O kuu lei loke ae kela,
A ka Mauna Kea e hii mai nei,
Loaa mai au i ka home lai,
I ka loku a ka ua Kanilehua.
Na’u ia pua i uo a paa,
I kahiko mau no kuu kino,
Ua laa kuu kino nau hookahi,
Na ka pua loke lani poina ole.
E o e ke onaona i ko lei,
A mai poina ia Anoipua.

Hakuia e Pilialoha.

(Kuokoa, 5/15/1914, p. 2)
