Ka Pua O Ka Hikina

Lyrics by Amy Ku'uleialoha Stillman

Music by Daniel Ho

 

He wehi ka pua o ka hikina

A he lei ʻāʻī no ka ʻeleu

 

Pua pione i mohala i ka lā

Pua aloalo laha ʻole i kaʻu ʻike

 

A he pua maoli e ʻalawa aʻe

Āhea ʻoe e huli hoʻi nei

 

Hū ana ka makani lā ahe ʻoe

Leo nahenahe ka i hiki mai

 

Haʻina ʻia mai ana ka puana

No ka pua o ka hikina ke aloha nō

An adornment is the flower of the east

And a neck lei for the skilled one

Peony flowers blossom in the sun

Esteemed and renowned in my sight

A true flower glances to and fro

When will you turn back?

The soft breeze

Carries a soft sweet voice

The story is told

Of the love for the flower of the east
