Mokihana Lullaby

Loyal Garner/ Louis Kauakahi



Ha˙aheo i ka nani
A he nani maoli nö.
He pua mokihana,
˙A ˙ala onaona ia hanu.

He pua haku ˙ia
Me ka mailelauli˙ili˙i,
Wili ˙ia me ke aloha
Me ke aloha poina ˙ole.

Chorus
Mahalo nö iä ˙oe
Iä ˙oe e ku˙u hoaaloha.
Aloha nö ˙o Kaua˙i
Kaua˙i o Kalanipö.

Puana ˙ia mai
No ku˙u lei aloha.
He pua mokihana
˙A ˙ala onaona ia hanu.

Translation:
Proud of it's beauty
A beauty unsurpassed
The mokihana flower
A sweet fragrant flower.

A flower woven into a lei
Twined with the small leaf maile.
Woven with love
A love that will never be forgotten.

Chorus:
Blessing to you
To you my dear friend.
Kaua˙i is loved and cherished
Kaua˙i, the land of Kalanipö

Tell the refrain
This lei is for you, my love.
The mokihana flower
A sweet fragrant flower.
