A maʻi for H. L. Kaleimomi, 1880.

HE MA’I NO H. L. KALEIMOMI.

Olu ka makani Puulena
E pa kolonahe nei,
Ka ninihi lai koiawe
Lai Puna i ke onaona.

Cho.—Kaupono o Makalei
I ka nuku o Nuuanu
I ka piko o Lanihuli
Ka pili i Kaipuolono.

O Makalei ka oe
O ka ma’i o Kaleimomi
Kamaiki o Enelani
Lokelani o Pekina.

Keiki ona miliona
No ka wai o Kawainui
A he pua iu laha ole
No ka wai o Makalii.

Puukani o Kailua
Eueu o Maunawili
E ku haaheo nei
I ka luna o Olomana.

Nui olu o Makalei
Ohaoha maikai
Nawai ole ona ia
He lohi na ke Kauila.

Kui ia a lawa pono
Ko laki e Kaleimomi
Haina i ke akea
I lohea mai ka puana.

O Makalei ko ma’i
Laau ona a ka I’a
Pipili paa i ke kumu
Mole o ke kano Kauila.

[Does anyone know who this ona miliona H. L. Kaleimomi is?]
