  “Ko makou kaikunane haku,
   Kaikunane kapu,
   Laniihikapu o kuu piko—­e! 
   Auhea oe, o o—­e,
   O oe, o makou, i o ianei hoi,
   Nau ka huakai,
   Ukali aku makou,
   I na pali i ka hulaana kakou,
   Au aku o ka Waihalau,
   Waihalau i Wailua—­e;
   He aloha ole—­e. 
   He aloha ole paha kou ia makou,
   Na hoa ukali o ka moana,
   O ka ale nui, ale iki,
   O ka ale loa, ale poko,
   O ka ale kua loloa o ka moana,
   Hoa ukali o kela uka,
   O kela nahele liuliu,
   O ka po iu anoano,
   E huli mai. 
   E huli mai, a e maliu mai,
   E hoolono mai ka i uwalo a’u,
   A’u hoi a kou pokii muli loa. 
   Ihea la hoi kau haalele
   Haalele iho ia makou
   I kahi haiki,
   Nau i waele ke alanui mamua,
   Mahope aku makou ou,
   Ike’a ai he mau pokii,
   Ilaila la haalele aku ka huhu,
   Ka inaina, ka opu aloha ole,
   Homai ka ihu i ou mau pokii,
   Aloha wale—­e.”

Ia manawa a kona kaikuahine muli loa e hapai ana i keia leo kaukau imua o Aiohikupua, alaila, ua hoomaeeleia ka naau o ko lakou kaikunane i ke aloha kaumaha no kona kaikuahine.

A no ka nui loa o ke aloha o Aiwohikupua i ko lakou pokii, lalau mai la a hoonoho iho la iluna o kona uha, a uwe iho la.

Ia Kahalaomapuana e kau ana i ka uha o kona kaikunane, kena ae la o Aiwohikupua i na hoewaa, i hoe ikaika; ia manawa, ua hala hope loa kekahi mau kaikuahine, a hala mua lakou la.

Ia lakou e holo ana, alaila, ua pono ole ka manao o Kahalaomapuana i kona mau kaikuaana.

Ia Kahalaomapuana e uwe ana no kona mau kaikuaana, ia manawa kona noi ana’ku ia Aiwohikupua, e hoihoi ia ia me kona mau kaikuaana; aka, aole no he maliu mai o Aiwohikupua.

“E Aiwohikupua,” wahi a kona kaikuahine, “aole wau e ae e lawe oe ia’u owau wale, ke ole oe e lawe pu me ko’u mau kaikuaana; no ka mea, ua kahea mua ae no oe ia’u i ko kakou wa i Paliuli; aka, aole wau i ae mai, no kou lawe ia’u owau wale.”

A no ka paakiki loa o Aiwohikupua aole e hookuu i kona kaikuahine, ia manawa, lele aku la o Kahalaomapuana mai luna aku o ka waa a haule iloko o ke kai.  Ia manawa, hoopuka aku la kona kaikuahine i olelo hope, ma ke mele, penei: 

  “Ke hoi la oe a ike aku,
   Ike aku i ka maka,
   I ka maka o na makua,
   Aloha aku i ka aina,
   I ka nui a me na makamaka,
   Ke hoi nei wau me o’u pokii,
   Me o’u kaikuaana hoi—­e.”

MOKUNA XI

Iloko o keia kaukau hope loa a Kahalaomapuana, ua hoopihaia ko Aiwohikupua naau i ke aloha nui; a kahea ae la oia e hooemi hope na waa, aka, ua hala hope loa o Kahalaomapuana i hope, no ka ikaika loa o ka holo o na waa; a i ka wa i huli hope ai na waa e kii hou i kona kaikuahine, aole nae i loaa.

(Maanei e waiho iki i ke kamailio ana no Aiwohikupua, e pono ke kamailio hou no kona mau kaikuahine; alaila, e kamailio hou no Aiwohikupua.)
