Mauga o Le Atuolo

Traditional | 1 comment

This heartbroken poet remembers gorgeous scenery in Samoa, places he and his beloved spent their last days together before he had to return to his studies abroad.

Mauga e ole Atuolo

Le la le le tu mai
Le tolotolo o Vailuaga
Le la le e pito i tai
Alofa`aga i si a`u pele
Olo`o ma eva ane ai
Fa`asavili i le falema`i
Pe mai moa i le talavai


Auro e manaia
O le lupe ua i vanu e
O `oe o lo`u sei rosa
Ua i tumutumu e
O`oe lo`u fa`omaoni
O le moemoe o lo`u taofi
Si a`u mea faitupe
Goodbye dear, la`u pele e
