A MELE INOA FOR KALANIANAOLE—HOAKAKAILILANI

The Commission [Hawaiian Homes] has a great debt to the generosity of these Ladies, the ones whose names are below, for their composing this mele that is being published, that is Mrs. Rosalie Puea Blaisdell and Mary Kalopi Keahi.

Hoakahaililani Song.

1st.

He kanaenae Hoakahaililani,
Nou no e Kalanianaole,
Kalani makaainana nui,
Mai Hawaii a Niihau.

Hui.

E Kalani Aloha Lahui,
I kipapa wiliau i ka pono,
Ike ia Kalamaula mole,
He lamaula mau no ko aka lililehua.

2nd.

Leiia mai ke aka o ko wehi,
Ula mau luhiehu lililehua,
Ka ipukukui malamalama,
Ka lamaku hoola lahui.

The words of this mele were composed by Mrs. Blaisdell, and the tune by Mary Kalopi Keahi.
