Ka Beauty A‘o Mānoa

by Anthony K. Conjugacion

 

Nani wale ke ‘ike i kakahiaka lā

Ke kuahiwi o Mānoa

Ke noenoe mai nei

Ho‘opulu ana i ke one

Pulu pē i ka ‘ilihia

 

He beauty i ka (ta) ua Tuahine o Mānoa

Pā aheahe ka makani

I ke ‘ala o ka laua‘e

Ke onaona o nā pua

Māhiehie i ka wao

 

I ka waokele i pali uliuli lā

Honehone i ka puakea

Ke pā wai a inu a kena

Heha i ka ho‘oluliluli

He mana‘o pono kēia

 

Puana e ka u‘i i ka uka o Mānoa

I ka ‘ehu kakahiaka

Pulu pē i ka ‘ilihia

Ho‘opulu ana i ke one

Ke pili mai i ‘ane‘i

 

Ka beauty a‘o Mānoa
