translation

Shells of 'Ewa throngs of people
Coming to learn
The news of the land
A land famous
From the ancient times
All of Pu'uloa, the path trod upon by
Ka'ahupahau
All of Pu'uloa, the path trod upon by
Ka'ahupahau
Beautiful Ka'ala, sublime in the calm
Famous mountain of 'Ewa
That fetches the wind of the land
The tradewind calls, "here I am, beloved"
Majestic Polea in the coolness
Home delightful to visitors
Relaxing in the coolness of the kiawe
And the soft blowing of the Kiu wind

    Can someone please e-mail me a copy of this most incredibly beautiful song in Hawaiian, but written phonetically, as it sounds? Most gratefully
