KA ULUWEHI O KE KAI

He ho‘oheno ke ike aku
Ke kai moana nui la
Nui ke aloha e hi‘ipoi nei
Me ke ‘ala o ka lipoa

He lipoa i pae i ke one
Ke one hinuhinu la
Wela i ka la ke hehi a‘e
Mai mana‘o he pono keia!

Ho‘okohukohu e ka limu kohu
Ke kau i luna o na moku la
‘O ia maku ‘ula la e ho
‘Oni ana i ‘oi anei


TRANSLATION:
THE PLANTS OF THE SEA

Such a delight it is to see
The great big ocean,
So familiar and very cherished
With its fragrance of the lipoa

It is lipoa which washes ashore
Onto the shiny white sand
Hot from the heating sun as you step on it
Don't think that this is fun!

How enticing is the display of limu kohu
Atop the rocks in the ocean,
Enticing one to pick them
As they sway to and fro
