When confronted by the beauty of Punahoa,
seek her body.
An ʻiwa on the crest of oceans mountains
who teases clouds from the waters brush.
Seek her. Body
bending into waveʻs crash,
teasing clouds. From the waters brush
watch her dance upon silver skin.
Bending into waves, crash
memory to minds summoning.
Watch her, dancing upon silver skin
Remember Hōpoe, who glides of golden plains.
When confronted by the beauty of Punahoa
upon woman training tides
an ʻiwa on the crest of oceans mountains
Remember Hōpoe, who glides.
