A beautiful mele for Kapuahanolani, 1893.

Palanehe i ka Iwihilo Song.

Akahi no po a ke ala
I hiki mai ai i ou nei
Koikoi mai ana i ka manao
I hoapili no ka makemake
E ake ka manao e ike
I ka nani i lohia i ka poli
Ua mali ia ua paa
Ua hei i kau makau.

Ua ai ia kau maunu
Ke momoni nei kau ma-na
Ua lihi lou ia loko
Palanehe i ka iwihilo
Hilo ia iho ko aloha
Pili paa ia i ke alo
Ua mali ia ua paa
Ua hei i kau makau.

O ke kiina ia ua lai
Ka apono ana ia ua olu
Ke kawili ana ia ua paa
Ua kokohi i ka puuwai
Nawai no e ole
A he ohu ia no ke kanaka,
Ua mali ia ua paa
Ua hei i kau makau.

He Inoa no Kapuahanolani.

[This mele is probably composed for Flora Kapuahanolani Cummins, daughter of John A. Cummins and Hattie Kahaulehale Hiram.]

(Leo o ka Lahui, 3/1/1893, p. 3)
