Ike ia Kaukini, 1911.

O KE LII KA’U MAKEMAKE

Ike ia Kaukini he lawaia manu
He upena kuu i ka noe o Pokahi
I hoopuni ia e ka ohu kakikepa
Ke na’i la i ka luna o ka Auwana
O ka uwahi ke kapeku e hei ai
Ka i’a manu o Puo’alii
O ke alii wale no ka’u makemake
O ka luhi o maua me ianei
O ko makou lealea no ia
Ua—i—ke—a.
