Ka Makualani

by Ane Kelley Kanahele

 

ʻO ka Makualani koʻu alakaʻi

A nāna e kiaʻi me ke aloha

 

Aloha kuʻu lei o Kahelelani

Kuʻu lei e kaulana nei

 

Ua hana iā ʻoe me ke aloha

I lei hoʻohihi no kuʻu kino

 

He uʻi mai ʻoe no ke kai one

He uʻi kaulana a puni ka honua

 

Haʻina ia mai ana ka puana

Kuʻu lei pūpū e kaulana nei

<解説>

クアナ・トレス・カヘレの音源に拠る。彼のCDのブックレットでは意図的にオキナ&カハコーを省いている。これがニイハウのハワイ語スタイルなのだが、ここでは補わさせてもらった(すみません)。

 

カウアイの地方新聞「The garden Island」に作者の記事が載っていたので一部を転載させてもらった。
