Pua Hone - by Rev. Dennis Kamakahi

 
O 'oe ka wahine
A ke aloha
I laila i ka uluwehi
Ku'u pua hone i ka la'i
 
 
Hone 'ana i ke hau
O Makiki
'O wau ko aloha
I ka noe kuahiwi
 
 
He u'i no 'oe
I ke kula
I wili 'ia me ka 'ie'ie
O leiloni
 
 
Ha'ina mai ana
Ka puana
Ku'u pua hone i ka la'i
He nani maoli no
I love
There, you are adorned
My honey flower in the calm
 
 
Kissed by the mist
Of Makiki
My love encompassed
By mist in the uplands
 
 
You are beautiful
There on the plains
Encircled by the sacred 'ie'ie
Vine of leilono
 
 
This ends
My story
For my honey flower in the calm
A beauty unsurpassed
