Where the Long White Waterfall (Love Song)
by Nelle Richmond Eberhart


Where the long white waterfall
Lone and lovely slips,
There is no hibiscus flow'r
Redder than her lips.


Like a night without a moon,
Her dark tresses are.
Hokoolélé, Shooting Star,
Hokoolélé.


On this coral beach no palm
Stands more straight and fair,
Sweeter she than jasmin wreath
On her bosom bare.


Like the love notes of a harp,
Comes her song afar.
Hokoolélé, Shooting Star,
Hokoolélé.


Hokoolélé! Hokoolélé!
