`Ula Noweo (Bright Red Glow) - Traditional

 
'Ula noweo la la e ka lae la
Ka pua 'ilima la
 
 
 
A ka lae a'o Nohili la
Ka huwai lana la o ka awapuhi la
 
 
 
'O ke oe kani akua ia la
A`o Nohili la e`uhene nei la
 
 
 
Ua liplipo wale la
A'o ka nahele la a'o Ho'ohie la
 
 
 
Ua 'ike wale 'oe la
I ka ua loku la a'o Hanalei la
 
 
 
Ha'ina mai ka puana la
La he inoa la no Kamoha'i la

 

The bright red glow of the sun
Opens the 'ilima blossom
(Shining on the ilima blossoms)
 
 
At the point of Nohili
The stream overflows among the ginger
(Water flows among the ginger)
 
 
The sounding sand
Of Nohili is delightful
 
 
 
The deep dense underbrush
Of the forest of Ho'ohie
 
 
 
You have seen
The heavy rain at Hanalei
 
 
 
Tell the refrain
In honor of Kamoha'i
