Strong Rain and Wind.
O Hae Hawaii:
Aloha oe:—On the 4th of April, it was a calm day; it was a day that Hana people drove in flying fish [malolo] into nets, and the young flying fish came back; in the evening, Kaanaana and Malulu went deep water fishing with hook and line, and not long after, the wind and rain came; Kaanaana quickly pulled up the anchor [pohaku], and Malulu urged Kanaana, “Cut the line and let’s paddle at once.” Kaanaana pulled up all the line into the canoe. They paddled for shore, but they did not reach it; there was a lot of rain and wind and they could not paddle away, the canoe went back, and the shore grew dark and could not be seen; they were lost at sea, it became dark, there was great rain and wind, and great lightning and thunder that night. They flipped over twice and the opening of the canoe was turned underneath, and they righted the canoe, and Malulu lost his paddle and the canoe only had one left. The canoe turned over with the billows and they were in danger of death for the second time. That night became day, that was the fith day, and the canoe did not turn over that day. That day turned into night; there was no calm and the land could not be seen; there was much rain and wind. They nearly died twice that night, and the ama of the canoe came off; Kaanaana jumped to it and binded the ama fast; they sat and the canoe was once again overturned by the billows, and they were in danger of death again; that was the fourth time they were in peril. It became day, and it was the sixth day; the wind died down a bit but the rain was strong; they sat in the canoe without food or clothing. Continue reading
