The Hula Kolea (The Plover Dance) Kolea kai piha! A plover eating at the edge of the sea! I aha mai nei? What is it saying to me? Kunou mai nei. It keeps bobbing its head. E aha kakou? To do what would you counsel? E ai kakou. Why, eat its plump body! Nohea ka ai? Whence comes this sweet morsel? No Kahiki mai. From the land of Kahiki. Hiki mai ka lani. When our sovereign appears, Olina Hawaii, Hawai'i gathers for play. Mala'eal'e ke ala, Stumble blocks cleared from the way, Nou e ka lani. Fit rule of the King’s highway. Puili pu ke aloha. Let each one embrace then his love; Pili me ka'u manu. For me, I'll keep to my dove. Ka puana a ka moe? Hark now, the signal for bed! Moe oe a ho'olana. Attentive then to loves tread, Ka hal'a a hiki mai; While a wee bird sings I the soul. O'oe pu me a'u My love comes heat-whole. Noho pu i ka wai aliali Then quaff the waters of bliss. Ha'ina ia ka puana Say, what is the key to all this? O ka hua o ke kolea,aia i Kahiki. The plover eggs laid in Kahiki. Hiki mai lou aloha. Ma'ele au. Your love. When it comes, finds me d(n)umb. -Unwritten Literature of Hawai'i, The Sacred Songs of the Hula, Nathaniel B.
