Keʻanae - Eleanor McCelland Heavey


Keʻanae, on the shores of Maui isle
There's a place called Keʻanae
Where I stayed for awhile
In the old Hawaiian style
In the quietness, the peacefulness of Keʻanae

From the mountain to the sea
Blooms a lovely awapuhi
Pampered by the falling rain
You can hear the sweet refrain
In the quietness, the peacefulness of Ke`anae

This is the land where taro grows
Like the days of long ago
All the kupa ʻāina know
Like the riches of our sea
In the quietness, the peacefulness of Keʻanae

So before my mele ends
Let me add another line
To the folks in Keʻanae
Keep up your sweet Hawaiian style
In the quietness, the peacefulness of Keʻanae

EMc
