“He moku Kaula,” 1866.

[Found under: “Ka Moolelo o Kamehameha I.”]

“He moku Kaula iho a me Niihau,
I kaulua ia Kawaihoa a Kane,
O kaulana a ka la i Halalii—la,
Hala ka la nalo ma Lehua,
Hiki ka molehulehu o ke ahiahi,
Moe e no Kauai iluna ka la,
E ao ana no Lehua i ke ka—i.”

[In his serial column on the history of Kamehameha I, S. M. Kamakau says this mele was given by Kalaniopuu at battle in Mahinaakaka. Another version of this mele was posted on the “Welo Hou” blog at Bishop Museum just the other day. Check it out by clicking here.]
