HAUPU SONG.

Ka luna au i Haupu,
Akahi no a upu ka manao,
A e lawe no au a lilo,
Lawe no au a lilo oe na’u.

Mahalo aku au o ka nani,
O ka nalu ha’i mai a o Maliu,
E maliu mai oe e ke aloha,
Ka iini a ka puuwai.

Huli mai oe e pili me a’u,
Pili kaua hemo ole oe,
Ua pilipaa i ka puuwai,
I ka pana holu i ka lihilihi. Continue reading

KA NAHELE SONG.

Ke noe mai nei ka nahele e,
I ka nee a ka ua Lililehua,
I ka nihi malie ae la,
Ma ka lihikai o Ohele la.

He halekipa na’u ke aloha,
A he makamaka na ka malihini;
Lohe aku nei no o Hiiaka,
Ka wahine i ka poli o Pele.

Hele mai nei ko’u aloha,
A lalawe i kuu nui kino;
Mai kuhi mai no paha oe la,
No Hopoe nei au la i Lehua.

Lililehua i Mana,
La’i ai na manu ilaila;
A ike i ka ono o ka’u pua,
Hoohie lua oia la.

Hakuia e JOS. W. K. KAPOLOLU,
