“E Kiss Kāua” tells of the kolohe antics of two lovers being drenched by the Kilihune rain of Lanihuli. While the sweet breath of a tender liko lokelani is being enjoyed, the mele cautions not to burden oneself by the gossiping crabs in town, but rather continue to delight in the nectar of the honeysuckle flower. This spirited tune was originally composed as a mele maʻi by Rev. Dennis Kamakahi for his eldest son.
