Inspiration for “Ka Pua o ka Makahala”? 1862.

He Inoa no Uila.

Auhea wale ana oe,
E ka pua Kamakahala,
Mai hoohala mai oe,
I ka pili la ua paa,
Ko kino kai au mai,
A loaa wau ianei,
Ka waiho no a ka i-a,
Aole e amu ia iho,
Kau nui ko’u manao,
I ke kahuli leo lea,
Ai lehua o kanahele,
Kuu maka kai ike pono,
I ka nani o ia pua,
Ke ala ka’u i honi,
Kuu kino kai Waolani,
He makani ka’u i lono,
I ka lawe olelo ae,
A ka ua Apuakea,
Aneane e iho mai,
Paio me ka Hoolua,
Elua o’u kikina,
Laki maoli ia mana,
E ai haaheo nei,
I ka pua o ka Oliana,
Kai noa ua ana oe,
I ka i-a ka okoa,
Mai ke poo a ka hiu,
I haawi hemolele ia,
Kuu pua aku ai au,
Keia kino me oe,
Eia mai he aloha,
A he lai no ko kino.

Auhea la hoi oe,
Ka la wela i Haili,
Ilihia iho nei au,
I ka nui o Kanahele,
I ke alu a na manu,
Wa olelo ia uka,
He aloha wale Lilinoe,
E pue nei i ke anu,
E alo nei i ka ino,
Pa ka makani Ulumano,
Hali ala o Mahiki,
A kahi a hiki mai,
A lana mai ka manao,
E ako no ia pua,
I ka ai a na a ka manu,
A kahi a aloha ae,
I ka pua o ke Kukui,
Kuhi au ua lawa pono,
Kuu lei e kui nei,
He manao e hoolawa,
Me ka pua o ka makemake,
Eia ke hoi nei,
O ka la welo i Lehua,
E napoo i ka ili kai,
Kipuia ka manao,
A kau ma ka Hikina,
Eia mai he aloha,
A he lai no ko kino.
