Nhasi vanatwo

Mbudzi ichakarodya nyama!
Ndagara ndazviona karekare,
Amai vepano nhasi vanatwo,
Maroverwe ari kuitwa mwana?

Iko kanyama kasina godo,
Kamupungurunje kandinodisisa,
Nhodzero, mumhu nezviito,
Nyeredzi pameso zvese nenjere!

Paanoti nzve-e shamhu yeMupenga,
Manenji, kupinyura mapfihwa,
Hadyana yose kudubu, bheu!
Ochiona zvino chakapedza mbudzi!

Zvino rangu simba zvaraparara?
Rakaenda ikwo kwakaenda makore,
Kudoti svaa hapana achandinzwa,
Ndoita sendadira parafini muchoto!

Kupoterera, ndazviziva idimikira,
Agara matukirwe aSamusha,
Kunema pwere yavanofarira,
Kufanana nababa kunoparira!

Ini mandigere muberere simu!
Rekeni nemiseve yangu nyamu,
Ndonanga masango anorira pfeni,
Regai nditaraukire mhanduwe!

Kwedu pasichigare

Zvazvo zvingori kutsi kwehope,
Ndasuwa kwedu pasichigare,
Ndinouya pazororo rino!
Tichafara vakoma navazukuru,
Paye tichirondedzera chinyakare!

Sekuru vagara havana muganhu,
Kunyanyanyanya vachinge vakoriva,
Muromo vavo haumharwi nenhunzi,
Vovhotomoka kune wangu mubvakure,
Kuti ndaiiitirapo dakara gwaro rechina!

Kure kwandinobva, kachana!
Nzira izere tsine nerukato,
Changamuka, rega kuwarairwa,
Ungaera watsika nzvenzvana,
Ivo mago ngemukuvavo!

Nyika yakanaka iyi weduwe-e,
Idzo shiri, magweture nenjiva,
Rekeni yandinayo mangamanga,
Yebhasikoro yagara chipombo,
Haidonhedzi neChisiisii zvacho!

Hwasho ndizvo, dzinovhara minzwa,
Zvibayamahure zvakati chakata,
Bva ndabvira kare ndichirova tsoka,
Sekunge ndinotamba muchongoyo,
Pakuti ndakuwara nemberewere!

Kupona nekusvika kwandaita,
Pondoti pindikiti mumba yekubikira,
Zvorokosho pachigaramakomucha,
Asika maroto, hapana zororo,
Zvigadziko zvozvimba nezvikodza!

Paye ndoeredzwa nendangariro,
Pamwe ndichawa hombarume,
Pada hurudza yamandorokwati,
Zvose zvopedzwa nenzwi guru,
“Muka ugeze uende kuchikoro!”

Unoendepi

Chinobhururuka chinomhara!
Segondo, pedyo naMukuvisi,
Haarare, kutonanga kumabhazi,
Wokwira rinoenda Kumakomoyo!
Chitora befu pamusika wehuku,
Uchitenga zvekusvika wakapakata,
Zvinoremerera, masaki mairi,
Semunhuwozve wabva kure?
Rokoromoka kudzika chamhembe,
Pamharadzano, wotora mabvazuva,
Kungoti fambei romira munyasi,
Potoburutswa navamutyairi,
Zvanzi rinoremerwa rikati pudzu,
Kukwira Matsororo netsoka,
Kudzoka mubhazi rati tunhu,
Panzira inoenda kwaMutambara,
Ipo todongorera paChimonyo,
Toruyambuka rwetatu Mvumvumvu,
Bva n’ai kwadzo ndedzomucheche,
Dzomukuru dzinoreva kudya,
Vamukokeri votizorodza paNhedziwa,
Tichitenga tushoma twasaririra,
Madomasi, hanyanisi nekanyama,
Nedoro dzvuku remubhodhoro,
Rekusvika paruzevha takapfumbata,
Nekuzvivaraidza, zvatave pedyo,
Kubva pano zviteshi zvavanda,
Kuti pote tasvika paBumba,
Tomonyoroka kudzika Raimu,
Yambu Shinja tave paMutsamvu,
Tosiyana nenzira yekwaShinja,
Pedze toyambuka Munyanyazi,
Muuyuweburi toburutsa vamwe,
VeBiriri, Mhakwe, Chikwakwa,
Tovangarara nemakata, hupoterera,
Ine minzwa ndiyo nzira youshe!
Pasina kutsauka, nanga nemujinga,
Inoenda Chipinge tosiyana nayo,
Dakara tati tunhu pakati pemakomo,
Panonhuhwira zvinanazi zveChikukwa!
Pakamanikidzana,
Chimanimani!
