A prayer, 1865.

[Found under: “Ka Hoomana Kahiko. HELU 26. Ka oihana lapaau, me ka puaa hiwa me ka moa keokeo. Na hana hoomana i ka lapaau ana, ma ka aoao Kahiko.”]

“Kumamalohia puna i ka awa,
Awa inu kahela ia na ka lani,
Kilihau wale iho no i ka ua,
Hiolani kela moe i Wahinekapu,
Kanikaeha a ke kanaka ki manu e,
He manu ke kanaka na iike i ke anu,
Ke hai mai la i kona koekoe,
E uhi iho oe i wahi kapa i mehana.”

[S. Ekaula includes this pule in his description of the work of kahuna lapaau, submitted in the “Hoomana Kahiko” series which begins in the newspaper Kuokoa on 1/5/1865 (missing issue), and concludes on 12/30/1865. For more on this series of articles, see “Essays upon Ancient Hawaiian Religion and Sorcery by Nineteenth-Century Seminarists” by Bacil F. Kirtley and Esther T. Mookini, found in The Hawaiian Journal of History, Volume 13, 1979.

This pule is a variant of “He Pule Inu ʻAwa” posted this morning on “Welo Hou.” If you did not see it yet, click here to go check it out!]
