      Exiles From The Isles

      You see them at the docks on steamer day
      When ships for Honolulu sail away,
      Those exiles from their island paradise.
      Behind each sad masked face a story lies.
      Why did they go. . . what caused them to depart?
      The longing eyes betray a homesick heart.
      When they first started keeping rendezvous
      They called "Aloha" to the friends they knew
      And made brave camouflage to hide their tears
      But as the months dragged into weary years
      Their eyes would search in vain along the rail
      For one familiar face that they could hail.
      And yet, they never miss a steamer day
      When ships for Honolulu sail away.
      They laugh and wave goodbye until at last
      They hear the final raucous warning blast
      Then cry, through lips that tremble with old pain,
      "Aloha oe . . . until we meet again,"
      To one familiar passenger they've found. . .
      Their hearts are on that steamer. . . homeward bound.
