Kaehuokalani - by John K. Almeida

Ohaoha na hiʻona o kuʻu wehi
Lanikeha i ka maka ke ʻike aku

Oia ka ʻanoʻi a ka puʻuwai
O Kaehuokalani kuʻu lei ia

A he lei hiehie na ka makua
A ke kupuna a e hiʻipoi nei

Liko pua miulana lei onaona
Hoʻoheno i ke ao mālamalama

Hea aku mākou o mai ʻoe
O Elaine Kaehuokalani he inoa
Well formed are the features of my darling
A delight to the eyes, behold

She is the joy of my heart
Kaehuokalani my beloved one

A wreath of delight to her parents
A child to be fondled by her grandparents

A miulan bud in a fragrant wreath
A giver of happiness in this world of light

I call to you, o answer me
Answer to your name, Elaine Kaehuokalani
