by J. Kealoha & Noelani Mahoe
Four islands are described in this interesting song that speaks of the various leis that have come from each region mentioned.

Hanohano Hawaiʻi lā lei i ka lehua lā
Kuahiwi nani lā ʻo Mauna Kea

Kilakila ʻo Maui lā lei i ka roselani lā
Kuahiwi nani lā ʻo Haleakalā

Ha`aheo Oʻahu lā lei i ka `ilima lā
Kuahiwi nani lā ʻo Kaʻala

Kaulana Kauaʻi lā lei i ka mokihana lā
Kuahiwi nani lā ʻo Waiʻaleʻale

Aīwaīwa Molokaʻi lā lei i ka kukui lā
Kuahiwi nani lā ʻo Kamakou

Hiehie Lānaʻi lei i ke kaunaʻoa lā
Kuahiwi nani lā ʻo Lānaʻihale

Ua kapu ʻo Niʻihau lā lei i ka pūpū
Kuahiwi nani lā ʻo Pānīʻau

Panoa Kahoʻolawe lā lei i ka hinahina lā
Kuahiwi nani lā ʻo Luamakika

Haʻina ʻia mai ana ka puana lā
Kuahiwi nani lā ʻo nā moku ʻewalu

Haʻina ʻia mai ana ka puana lā
Nā moku ʻehā lā ʻo ka Pākipika
