A mele for Maunakea, 1894.

Maunakea.

E aha ia ana Maunakea,
Kuahiwi alo pu me ke kehau,
Alawa iho oe ia Maunaloa,
Kohu moa uakea i ka malie,

Ku aku au mahalo o ka nani,
Ka haale a ka wai hui a ka manu,
Kau aku ka manao a e ike lihi,
Ka uwahi noe a o Kilauea,
Ke hea mai nei Halemaumau,
Enaena ke ahi a ka wahine,
Ka wahine kui pua lehua o Olaa,
I hoa hoonipo no ka Malanai,
I ahona Puna i ka hone a ke kai,
Ke ala o ka hinano ka’u aloha,
Aloha ia uka puanuanu,
I ka hoopuluia e ke kehau,
Haina ia mai ana ka puana,
Pulu elo i ka wai a ka Naulu.

(Makaainana, 9/17/1894, p. 3)
