Rega ndikurume nzeve

Huya ndikuyambire mwanangu,
Chirega kuti tasa pamberi pavakuru,
Gara pasi, zvichati torei nguva,
Handiti wagara wanga wadya?

Nyika yaugere yakanaka kwazvo,
Yaunoshora uchida dzevamwe,
Pameso pako ndeyemanga-manga,
Uchaishuwira mukore unotevera,
Chifara nayo zvinogutsa hana.

Imo mumamana mauchapinda,
Usanyara kuvaratidza dzako nyora,
Haungatizizve mubvuri vako,
Mavanga anoratidza kwaunobva,
Kuti uone kuziva kwawakananga,
Kuda vamwe hunge wazvida pachako!

Dzidza kudya zvakadzikama,
Zvine mwero, kwete kuzvimbirwa,
Zvishoma, usati ndazvionerei,
Semuchero wegudo unodyirwa kusvotwa,
Zvinoita hama dzamai vako pano!
Mudye zvamunorima nemaoko enyu,
Zvinobva kure hazvina anoziva,
Wozvipereka negapu remvura,
Utende nyakubika nanyakurima!

Uchawa nesimba zhinji pakuyaruka,
Chiwa chiremera chavari kure,
Unake divi rinotamba neve pedyo,
Uwe muchengeti wemazera ose,
Musimboti wevaduku, vokutarisira,
Usakanganwa kuremekedza vakuru,
Paunoti dzvutu, kupedza nyota,
Ita rimwe uchidira muvhu,
Kupembedza vadzimu, vagokutarira.

Paunozoti kure, wotsvaga shamwari,
Yako yepamwoyo, ine ndoro chena,
Rangarira hapana akarurama zvose,
Mumwe nemumwe ane zvaanotadza,
Asika mukadzi haarohwi mwanangu,
Imbabvu yako, ichengetedze nerudo!

Peta muswe paruzhinji, kuzvininipisa,
Kwete kugara mutonono pane vanyarikani,
Kungobweteketa sedzisimo pane vamwe,
Hupenyu imhindupindu zvaunoona,
Irombe richaenda pakudzoka iduma,
Usaseka vamwe kana uchinge wayambuka,
Hukuru hunoonekwa nekusimudzira vamwe.

Shinja

Ndiripo pamusoro peNyachirongo,
Ndakatarisa bani reMatiashe,
Ndakanuka ndangoshama muromo,
Nyika yakanaka iyi wedu-we!

Kufunga ndakakurira nyika dzino,
Kana neni ndinozviramba,
Ko nei ndaisazviona ndichiyaruka?
Ndichishuwira nzvimbo dzevamwe.

Nguva yafamba ndichingoyewa,
Kana nzara kuinzwa bodo,
Ndatanga ndiri munzviru nenhengeni,
Zvino ndawe mumatohwe nechecheni.

Husavi zvemauro hwarongeka,
Nembwa yangu Muroyindishe,
Katsuro zvese nemhembwe tabata,
Mutikiti tombozorora kwemazuva.

Sehoromba ndodzika kuchiro,
Kuremekedza masango, zvokodoka,
Kuti nonoke, mapere otanga kurira,
Ndikapera nechakapedza mbudzi.

Kusvika nekamufambiro keabaya,
Ma’mwana vachirova kamupururu,
Muruwanze, kunditenda nemutupo,
Misodzi yoita seichadonha.

Zvino vamai vondipa manyemwe,
Kumona tsambakodzi yerukweza,
Kuraudza chembere muto venyama,
Kuda kuti harahwa ifire musango!

Usaonererwa

Rega kuonererwa,
Kudira jecha zvinhu zvavakuru,
Pagurumwandira nekuona vanhu,
Vakomana vanokuvhakachira,
Usiku, mapere otanga kufamba,
Vokugadzirisa kwadikwadi,
Paunoti regai zvangu ndizorore,
Paye dzichangotanga kubata,
Vorova goni, hazvidi anovhura,
Iwe uchakadzimirwa nehope,
Hazvitori nguva kucherechedza,
Kuti wapinda mutsekwende,
Vozvidziisira zvavo mvura,
Yeputugadzike, magetsi ako,
Poto yavamai, zingwa revana,
Vachikubvunzurudza chikonzero,
Chaita uvhecherwe paruzhinji,
Wotanga nekundandamira,
Asi chavanacho inguva,
Kusvika voti dadanu-dadanu,
Kutaura kupfuura mufundisi,
Newe zvatokukatyamadzawo,
Asi magumo azvo unoaziva,
Zvino mufaro hapachina,
Ndanzwa pane aridza tsamwa,
Pawatanga kukumbira ruregerero,
Nemisodzi pamatama sepwere,
Wozunzwa, uku neuko semuzhanje,
Zvino vavhura musangano negwati,
Riya zenya chidzipura neganda,
Vokurikita, kutanga nezvigunwe,
Pasi petsoka, pamusoro penzwara,
Rodunduvira ropa pasina rinoerera,
Pedze vokuvaridza nedumbu,
Kwazvo, kukubhura nedanda magaro,
Musana kukwaturwa nechamboko,
Vachikudira mvura urege kufenda,
Zvino muviri vose wati nyakata,
Kuti imvura chete, hapana achaziva,
Runyanhiriri, vokusiya wave kafiramberi,
Vamai vokundundurudza kuchipatara,
Uzowana mukana wekuchenjedza,
Vamwe, kuti musadaro hazviitwi,
Kubva iro zuva ravakati vachadzoka,
Chihwerure, worara wakapfeka bhutsu,
Zvimwe vanokusvikira wakagadzirira,
Pada ukawana mukana wekutiza,
Kukurukura hunge wapotswa!

Hazvindishamisi

Ndakagara zvangu ndazviona,
Kumiramira, vaiwe muchekadzafa,
Nemaziso kuti uri benyumundiro,
Kaendwa haudzoki, musiyadzasukwa,
Mavara kutaima aiwa eshato.

Bva rwagara rudo ibofu,
Poshi, piri, inga vave vashanu,
Kamusarapamba ndakakuzvarira,
Kubva vachatamba mahumbwe,
Haunyariwo here zvino vayaruka?

Shiri ine muririre wayo hairegi!
Ndaingoti kuda zvichashanduka,
Pada nguva, makore ndimufundisi,
Sorojena, zvino wachena nendebvu,
Ndichingoti wega uchaonawo.

Datya hariisvi mumvura inopisa,
Rinotomuka chiriporipotyo rotiza,
Rinokandwa mune inotonhorera,
Yodziiswa mbidyana-mbidyana,
Nenguva, nyorenyore woribika.

Pamwe zvaisvika pakurwadza,
Ndichiti makata kushura materu,
Hakuna rima ringasviba zvakadai?
Chiedza chave kuda kusvika chete!
Zvorokwata rave pedyo nekuibva.

Zvino ndaneta ndongokutarisawo,
Chauya masikati charamba ndima,
Chauya usiku charamba hope,
Madiro, chiita zvako zvaunoda,
Hapana kana zvichandishamisa!

Pasipanodya

Pane angakwanisa kumisa zviroto,
Zvemwanasikana afunga twake,
Kuzvisunungura kubva munhamo,
Yamugare ndare paruzevha,
Paanodadirwa nevakaenda kare,
Vanodzoka nemeso machena,
Anotaima kana nemujiho,
Vakarova mucheno vamandiriri,
Zvino Maidei arota hupfumi,
Mari yebhazi yekuenda yarongeka,
Yekudzoka inoonerwa mberi,
Vadikani kudochema pachiteshi,
Moyo wake kare wazvipira,
Iko kumarimuka, mazivandadzoka,
Asika zvagara havisi nyore,
Kunyanyanyanya zvisina kurongwa,
Kusina hama neshamwari hakuendwi!
Basa harimuki zvekumhanya,
Pekugara panoda mutero vemba,
Pekurara kupawana potemesa musoro,
Zvino pane asisazivi nzira yekutsime?
Sebhazi rinokwirwa nevesevese,
Pasina nguva, nyama dzorwadza,
Chakati kuuya ichi chemamazuva’no!
Kwave kungokwenya, muviri wovava,
Kana shaya kutsenga zvonetsa,
Opona nemasvusvu sepwere,
Tunotapira rave bhanana raibvisa,
Roosvisvina senge ane mavende,
Chiona muviri wonhuhwa rufu,
Veukama nazvo vakatyamadzwa,
Chii chaizvo chaakasiira musha?
Kwoodzoka zvino kekupedzisira,
Nzvimbo yekuzorora vatochera,
Weduwe-e, pasipanodya!
