I've found a poem about Äheahea or ‘Äweoweo:
Shrub found in many different climates
Grows to about the height of an average teenager
Wood used for shark hooks
Leaves cooked and eaten like spinach
Who lives on the white capped summit of Mauna Kea
Scattered on the lowlands of the main islands
Isolated on the far northwest islands of Lisianski and Laysan.
Chenopodium Oahuense.." (Source: Kamehameha Middle School, Honolulu)
