Who composed Ka Keili? What is the earliest source for this song?

The question would be much improved if you'd include what you know about it: specifically, where you came across the song. – msh210 Apr 1 '12 at 18:17
What is Ka Keili? – Adam Mosheh May 20 '12 at 5:05
@AdamMosheh It is a piyut customarily recited before Musaf on Yom Tov (specifically, after the Haftara and before Ashrei), unless Yizkor is recited. It is found at least as far back as in the siddur of the Shlah. – Fred Apr 29 '15 at 21:46

The identity of the author is unknown.

piyut.org.il is a wonderful site, but some of their attributions are wrong. I would not take them as the final word on authorship. – JXG May 25 '11 at 9:57
