The rumbling thunder is your sacred sign, 1912.

MAMO KAPU A LONO.

Ka Hekili e nakolo ana,
Ko hoailona kapu ia.
Ka uwila e anapu ana,
Ko malamalama ola ia.
Ke ao e kaa ana i ka lani,
Ko kuhikuhi ike nui ia.
Ke anuenue e pipio ana,
Ko lei nani kahiko ia.
Ka ua kualau ma ka moana,
Ko wahaolelo akamai ia.
Ka ohu halii i ke kuahiwi,
Ko kapa aahu nu-a kea ia.
Ka la e alohi nei i ka lani,
Ko papale kalaunu alii ia.
Ka mahina e konane la’i ana,
Ko hainaka lima pakeke ia.
Na hoku e olinolino ana,
Ko pua omau umauma ia.
Ka makani kolonahe malie,
Ko lawe leta nui ia.
Ka wai mapuna a Kane,
Ko wai ola inu ia.
Ke kai o Moana kai oo,
Ko kai kiheahea i ka ili.
Ka nu’a ale i ka Pakipika,
Ko alanui ia puni ka honua.
Haina ka mamo kapu a Lono,
Kapaihiokalani ka inoa.

WAILUANUIHOOANO.

[This is another mele in the same format, where X is your Y. Might anyone know who Kapaihiokalani refers to and who the composer Wailuanuihooano might be?]

(Kuokoa, 6/28/1912, p. 8)
