Poliahu

by Frank Kawaikapuokalani Hewett
Legends and religious figures are mentioned in this interesting song that speaks of love and sadness as well as the lei.

Wai maka o Poliahu
I ka `eha a ke aloha
Kaumaha i ka ha`alele
O Aiwohi kupua

Anuanu ka `iu kêhau
O Mauna Kea
A`ohe ana ipo aloha
E ho`o pumehana

Kau mai ka hali`a aloha
O ka wa mamua
Puolu ka wai o Nohi
Ku`u mehameha

He lei ko aloha
No ku`u kino
Pili poli hemo`ole
No na kau akau

Hui:
E ho`i mai (e ho`i mai)
E ku`u ipo
E ho`i mai (e ho`i mai)
E pili kâua
E ho`i mai (e ho`i mai `oe)
E ho`i mai `oe e, e
E ho`i mai `oe
