Sheltered by mountain veil

nourished by misty rains

an awakening of the heart of lehua

a blossom of flaming red

born of fire some have said

united in love to ʻōhiʻa

hearts forever entwined

fate predefined

his strength is what sustains her

But it is often said

plucking this blossom will bring ahead

misty rains

her tears are shed

separating the lovers ʻōhiʻa and lehua
