Zvepano

Ndezvekungonyengerera,
Nguva dzese kungokumbira,
Kuti ma’mwana swederai pedyo?
Zvanzi zvipi, moda kudini kwacho,
Kubva mukai muende kumunda?
Tana, vachamuka nguva yavanoda,
Zvino mutsai zvenyu vana vandibatsire?
Hunzi regai vambosesedza hope,
Tungamirai nemukomana wemombe,
Kusaziva kudzidzisa vevamwe basa,
Venyu vekubereka vakazvambarara,
Iyo rayiro kana kuteerera,
Mudhara zvanzi anopenga,
Richipinda nedivi rechibuda neuku,
Mangwana pano kana ndati tasa,
Nhaka yangu yose yongoparara,
Wemombe uya azadza rake danga,
Momupomera uroyi neumbavha,
Makanganwa kuti pamairarama,
Iye aidzidza upenyu kurarama,
Zvepano ndezvekujaidzwa,
Nhasi hapadyivi rinopisa!
Mukai, mukai iye zvino!

Dhiabhurosi

Nhingi ndiye akadai,
Uyu akandikonyon’ora,
Kudhumana ndosunga bhutsu,
Uya agara akandivenga,
Handitauri naye bodo,
Kumuona ropa rinogwamba,
Wangu ane ruchengera,
Kuda kuziva kesekese,
Wasu wako makuhwa kani,
NdiMuzawazi kunditaura,
Onini ane godo rinorema,
Nhingirikiri yake yakashata,
Sauyeyo kunhuhwa heyi,
Iye ndiye akazondidai,
Iwe zvino ukazodini?
Ko-o, ibvaka kumhepo?
Mai nhiya ndivo vadii?
Gadzirisa chatambisa nhova,
Mangwana usashora vamwe,
Vanozviitira zvinhu zvavo,
Pedze woponera dhiabhurosi,
Unomushupirei nhai?

Nyika inodadisa

Rengwendu, ndokwira matunhu!
Kuyewa iyo yakatikomberedza,
Mapani, mabakwa nemakura,
Mashizha oyevedza ruvara,
Inongova mudya nemeso!

Inzwa runyararo kuti mwi-i,
Bedzi kurira kwemashizha,
Bva hutsi hwenyama hautosvori!
Shiri dzemhando isharaude,
Dzinongotsviriridza zvinodadisa.

Kamhepo inga kutonhorera,
Kachifuridzira zvinyoronyoro,
Kunhuvirira kwaivo mashizha,
Kana maruva emuno musango,
Nehuchi kubva mumikoko.

Rawira michero mutakunanzva,
Nzviru, nhengeni nechecheni,
Shuma, makwakwa nematohwe,
Nyii, nhunguru nemazhanje,
Chitaurirwa mbare yegotsi!

Pandati seya ndabiwa nehope,
Kwadoka, zvino ndamuka nedzungu,
Ndoti nyamu, chitsoka ndibereke,
Ndovhunduka kese kati kwata,
Nezvigutsa zvakasara murutsva!

Muka mudiwa titandare

Muka mudiwa, muka,
Ndiri kungoumburuka siku rose,
Kana icho chibani chongoti bari-bari,
Tambo yotopera, haichasviki kuparafini,
Chinguri ndabvira kunetsana neutunga,
Hona dandemutande mudenga pambariro,
Hope dziri kuramba kubata wena,
Kachikokiyana kemadeko kandiparira,
Kaye kandakamanikidzwa nabhururu.

Ndati mukazve iwe titandadzane,
Pepuka, chirega kudairira muhope,
Tsamira paruoko rwangu rweruboshwe,
Undiudze zvaitika munharaunda ino,
Zvesvondo rose pandaiwe kubasa,
Ko-o dzako nyambo dzemandorokwati,
Nditaurire dziye dzinokodza mwoyo,
Upote uchindirezva pamwe dzingauya.

Ako mashoko akareruka pahana,
Chese chaunorewa inhapitapi kwandiri,
Shungu dzangu dziye dzapinduka kuwe nyasha,
Neugwara hwaparara, ndoita sendiri mhare,
Marwo hapasisina, ndodyawo zvine mwero,
Unyope hwatoenda, ndofondoka kusakura,
Randinoita basa rinombowe nyore here?
Asi ndikafunga iwe zvese zvinoreruka.

Takabva kare zvino tachembedzana,
Iwe neni, ndiko kugarisana hukama,
Kutsamwa kuye kwandinoita hadzisi shanje,
Unoziva wani ruchengera rudo,
Vasahwira vako vane tsika dzekukwereta,
Vakaberekwa chembere dzaenda kundari,
Gara kure, vanokufurira zvisina maturo!

Handina nyono mudiwa, ndichakamuka,
Enderera zvako mberi, ndiri kukunzwa,
Iwewe dzako ndidzo dzinomutsa vavakidzani,
Ubvunze zasi kumusika uko vanokunzwa,
Ndai…hhrrrrrrrr, hhrrrrrr, hhrrrrrrrr.
