E o, e Miriam Kapili Kalikohou Likelike, 1887.

E ALA!—E LIKELIKE

Niniaulani ka Manao,
Ia oe la e Kapili,
I ka niau ana iho nei,
I ke Ala Malihini.

Hui: —||: E Kapili—Likelike—
Ala ae oe a e moe loa nei :||

E Kapili hoi!
E Kapili e!
Eia ko Lei
O Kaiulani.

Ui ae nei o Kalani,
Auhea kuu Kuahine?
Aia paha i Panaewa,
I ke kui lei Lehua.

Ninau ae nei o Liliu,
Auhea oe e Kapili?
Aia paha oe i Mana,
I ke kui lei Ohelo.

[WAKE! O LIKELIKE!

Thoughts rush,
Of you, O Kapili,
Who has swiftly gone,
Upon that Unfamiliar Path.

Chorus:—||: O Kapili—Likelike—
Wake, You, who rests for all times :||

O Kapili!
O Kapili!
Here is your Lei,
Kaiulani.

The King inquires,
Where is my dear Sister?
Perhaps she is in Panaewa,
Stringing lei of Lehua.

Liliu asks,
Where are you, O Kapili?
Perhaps you are at Mana,
Stringing lei of Ohelo.]

(Elele, 2/12/1887, p. 2)
