More on Kapo in the verdure, 1905.

[Found under: “Ka Moolelo o Hiiaka-i-ka-poli-o=pele”]

[Hiiaka and Wahineomao folks come upon a halau filled with men, women, and children, at Wailua Iki. The activity within the halau was hula.]

While they were standing, those inside were dancing hula. The hula being performed at that time was a hula olapa. When they were at a break, Hiiaka chanted, for she saw her cousin, Kapokulani, sitting amongst the verdure. Kapo saw their young alii and her tears began to flow.

THIRTY-FIFTH CHANT OF HIIAKA.

1. Kanikanihia Hikapaloa—e,
2. O ka lai o Wailua-iki,
3. Lai malino a Kapo i noho ai,
4. I noho nanea no i ka lai o Kona,
5. Alo—ha,
6. O kanaenae aloha iho la no ia la,
7. O ka leo,
8. O ka leo ka mea aloha—e,
9. Noho ana Kapo i ka ulu-wehiwehi,
10. Ku ana iluna o Maoheleia,
11. Ka ohai ku i Maunaloa,
12. Aloha mai Kaulanaula,
13. Eia mai ka ula leo la,
14. He waimaka,
15. He mohai aloha na’u ia oe e Kapo,
16. O Kapokulani, o moe hauna iki,
17. E hea au ia oe,
18. O mai hoi.

[Another version of “Noho ana Laka i ka uluwehiwehi.” See yesterday’s “Welo Hou” post!]
