Hi`ilawe



Hi`ilawe was probably written by Sam Li`a Kalainaina, Sr and Mrs. Kuakini
Translation - from Na Mele o Hawai`i Nei by Samuel H. Elbert and Noelani Mahoe



Kamaka ka ikena ia Hi`ilawe       All eyes are on Hi`ilawe
I ka papa lohi mai a`o Maukele    In the sparkling lowlands of Maukele

Pakele mai au i ka nui manu       I escape all the birds
Hauwala`au nei puni Waipi`o       Chattering everywhere in Waipi`o

A`ole no wau e loa`a mai          I am not caught
A he uhiwai au no ke kuahiwi      For I am the mist of the mountains

He hiwahiwa au no ka makua        I am the darling of the parents
A he lei `a`i na ke kupuna        And a lei for the necks of grandparents

Na Puna ke `ala i hali`ia mai     The fragrance is wafted from Puna
Noho i ka wailele a`o Hi`ilawe    And lives at Hi`ilawe

Ha`ina `ia mai ana ka puana       Tell the refrain
Kamaka ka `ikena ia Hi`ilawe      All eyes are on Hi`ilawe
