Section of a sweet mele aloha aina by Gabriel K. Keawehaku, 1919.

[From the mele: “OIA ANEI? OIA NO.”]

Me he lena-alani la o ka Mamo,
Me he ula-weo la o ka Iiwi,
Me he ula-uli la o ka Apapane,
Me he omaomao la o ka O-u,
Me he lelo-lena la o ka O-o,
Me he ele-uli la a ka Alae,
Me he keokeo opua la o ke Koae,
Ka nani ou e Hawaii a mau.
Oia anei? Oia no.

[This is an awesome way to think about colors!]

(Kuokoa, 9/12/1919, p. 8)
