Kuhio Bay - by Keliana Bishaw
 
'Akahi ho'i a 'ike ku'u maka
I ka nani a'o Waiakea
'A'ohe lua e like ai
Me ka nani a me ka nani
A'o Kuhio Bay
 
 
Mahalo a'i au i ka nani a'o Hilo
Me ka ua a'e ho'opulu nei
'Oni ana Mokuola au i ke kai
'O ua 'aina 'e
Kaulana nei
 
 
Wai anuenue a he wai kaulana
Wai maka'ika'i a ka malihini
Wai kamaha'o i ka'u 'ike
E papahi e ho'ope nei
I ka nahele
 
This is the first time I saw for myself
The beauty of Waiakea
There is no other that can compare
With the beauty, the beauty
Of Kuhio Bay
 
 
I admire the beauty of Hilo
The rain drenches it
Mokuola stands out in the sea
Island that is
Known to all
 
 
Rainbow falls is well known
Falls visited by strangers
Marvelous waters in my sight
It streams down and wets
The plains
