He Wehi Aloha no Kauluwena

He wehi kēia no ku‘u pua
Milimili na ka ua Kūkalahale

Hālāwai ka mana‘o me Pauahilani
Ka ‘imina i ka pono no nā kama lei

Ua ana i ka loa o ‘Āina‘ike
Kūkulu kauhale a Limaloa

Nāu i ho‘olana me ka wiwo ‘ole
He aloha lāhui i ka umauma

E ō e ka wehi pua laha ‘ole
Kou inoa ‘a‘ala, ‘o Kauluwena

 

A song of adornment for my flower
Tenderly caressed by the Kūkalahale rain

My thoughts have gone to meet Pauahilani
Seeking goodness for her beloved children

We have assessed the breadth of ‘Āina‘ike
And built shelters like Limaloa’s

You have fearlessly brought hope and encouragement
Carrying the love for your people in your heart

Respond, my special flower
To your fragrant name, Kauluwena
