Can there be a Kanilehua Rain if there is no more lehua? 1893.

Ka Ua Kanilehua

He aloha e ka ua Kanilehua
I loku hala ole i ka waokele
Hookele akamai no hoi oe
Helu ekahi o ka mikioi
Na’u i pailaka pololei
Ike ia ka nalu hai o Kawili
Neenee mai oe e ke aloha
Ua anu ka lehua i ka nahele
I ka pehi mau ia e ka ua noe
Noeau ka hana a ka uwila
Ka anapa ma na rumi liilii
He liilii ka hana a ke akamai
A he niih [nihi] ka hele’na o ka nahele
Ua ako hewa oe i ka lehua
I lawa no a hoolale iho
Holu ana e ka malua kiiwai
Haina ka puana i lohe ia
No Hilo ko’u lei e lei ai

[E nihi ka hele’na o ka nahele.]

Nanea i ka holo a ke kaaahi,
Ua like me ka lio waha uaua.
Ka ihona au a o Kekele,
Ike i ka nani a o Kilohana.
Hele kuu hoa a maeele,
Aole wai e maalili ai. Continue reading
