Hölei - Traditional 

ʻO Kalapana, kai leo nui,
Ua lono ka uka o Hōlei,
He uwā lā Kalapana, ē,
Kuli wale, kuli wale i ka leo,
He leo no ke kai, ē.
It is Kalapana, the great-voiced sea,
The uplands of Hölei listened,
Roaring is Kalapana,
Deafened, deafened indeed by the voice,
It is the voice of the sea

This poem refers to the booming and swelling seas of Kalapana that was finally destroyed by lava 1990. Visit Cody Pueo Pata at: www.ululoa.com for other lyrics from his CD
