Mele found everywhere in the newspapers. 1899.

[Found in: “HALEIWA HOTELE: Ka Ui Mahiehie ma Waialua”]

O ka loku hala ole
A ka ua i Maili,
Ili hewa ka manao ia nei,
Ka waiho la i ka lai.

Chorus: O oe kai hui iho la,
Ka manao e puapuai la,
Ei ae o Puu-o-Hulu,
Hului no au, ua hiki no.

Nau i lahui i ka leo,
Ike i ka makani Kaieulu [Kaiaulu],
Ka makani o ka aina,
Ilaila hoola’i na manu.

[Here is another interesting mele found in a nice description of an excursion aboard the train Kaala to the newly-opened Haleiwa Hotel. It is added into the narrative by the writer as he describes passing by Puuohulu. This inserting of mele into prose is something found often in Hawaiian writing. This composition seems very reminiscent of another perhaps more famous mele still sung today.]
