A procreation song for Kamehameha IV, 1864.

He Mai.

He mai no Iolani a ka Hulumanu,
Nani wale ka mai o ka Lani e huhuki nei,
A ka alauka e hoonuunuu nei,
Aloha wale ka hua a ka Uluna o ka mai,
Ka huihui paipu a ka mai e amo nei,
E paluku nei i na pali Koolau.

Ai alaala ko i nei mai ke ike aku,
A ike i ka mai Nananuu o Kikakika,
Ko mai kika ke nee nei,
A nae wale ka hoi ke kuapuu ua haki kona kua,
O ke kane me ka wahine mea laua,
E nae au—e nae—e.

O kau pali o ka’u pali—ke,
E nae au—e nae—e,
A nanae, hahau—hau—e,
Ko mai—

(Kuokoa, 1/2/1864, p. 1)
