Pauoa Liko Lehua  (1924) 
by Charles E. King

E ka uʻi mae ʻole
O ka uka ʻiuʻiu
E maliu mai ʻoe
A ʻo wau kou hoa
A e kohukohu ai
Maʻaneʻi mai kāua
A i ʻolu hoʻi au

Hoʻohihi au e ʻike
I ka nani ʻoia pua
A he pua mae ʻole
A he wehi no ka uka
ʻO Pauoa liko lehua
A ʻo kou hoapili
O lei pua rose nani

Aia i laila
Ke koʻiʻi koi a loko
Mao ʻole ka ʻiʻini
I ʻanoʻi au e ʻike
I ke kumu o ke ʻala
A he ʻala onaona
I ka maka o ka ʻōpua

E hōʻike ka puana
No ka lau liko lehua
O ka uka o Pauoa
I lei kāhiko noʻu
No ka ua Kūkalahale
A he lei ua pūia
I ke ʻala me ke aloha
