O Ku o Ka o Ku o Ka! 1908.

[Found under: “Ka Moolelo Kaao o Hiiaka-i-ka-Poli-o-Pele”]

At that point she [Wahineomao] turned and headed back. She set her eyes upon her aikane [Hiiaka and Pauopalae]. And then she once again intoned the words which her aikane [Hiiaka] taught her: “O Ku, o Ka, o Ku, o Ka.” It was true, her trip was not distressful; nor was she affected by going all the way and coming back, but  she arrived quickly to where Hiiaka and Pauopalae were quietly walking.

[Happy birthday to the lady who taught me to “o Ku o Ka” on those long journeys.]
