* Ka hali‘a ‘ana [K1],  [HMA]
**  Hone i ke |  lipo  [ACHS only]
The heart always yearns
For the hinahina flower
As an elegant wreath
To adorn my person

Only now
Comes the arrival

Teasing my soul

My heart is stirred
Tremendous is the desire
Loving remembrances
Are filled with affection [HMA]

* Loving remembrances
