Hazvina zvazvinoreva

Usashushikana zvako hama,
Nekudzika-dzika kuzvitsvaga,
Hazvina kana zvazvinoreva,
Nyakuzvireva akatozvikanganwa,
Kupfuura achikuturikira mhepo,
Kukukandira mweya wetsvina,
Yave mhezi pakati pewako moyo,
Pfungwa hadzichaoni mangwana,
Dzakusunga ndare, kukuchemedza,
Wotadza nekupfakanyika kwose,
Iye pano akuita garandichauya,
Iwe tende, kugarira guyo sembwa,
Kucheuka-cheuka uchiti ati pfacha,
Kwaari arikutopembera zvake,
Kudya namambo achipfachura,
Achironga hwake, kuenda mberi,
Akoshiwa akasiya akufurusa,
Kwaingove kuda kukurwadzisa,
Kudzorera zvawakataura zurori,
Hauzivi zvinoita muridzi wesando?
Anoona chese-chese sechipikiri!
Ndiko kuzvicherera rake rinda,
Kuvhara mwena unobuda ishwa,
Kutsonga, vane mukaka pamhuno,
Chisiya, chitema hachidzorerwi!
Rerutsa moyo, ndiwe une murefu,
Yagara tsamwa inodya muridzi!

Bata panorwadza

Parerenyatwa tose tinopaziva,
Zvinavashe, kutonga ndekwamambo,
Dambudzo tisu takarirera,
Takawira pavadzvova ndururu,
Tungamirirai, kwete kutonga nedemo,
Kuvakuru nevadiki shamuyarira,
Totsonderwa muduri semhutwa,
Nhongo ndokurasa muswe pamupiro,
Zvino nyika yamunywa nemujuru,
Munhu vose mumoyo oshushikana,
Chimoto, pesepese vangova musika,
Chigaro cha’she chave chiwengwa,
Varivo vananyagumbo vasingagari pasi,
Hwavo hwangove ushewokunze!

Ziva nguva

Mhizha inoonekwa mambakwedza,
Hope dzagara hadzina ndima!
Muka mwanangu ubvise mabori,
Gumbeze wonanika paruzhowa,
Tora kabvavha ugeze tsiriri,
Ubude panze urohwe nemhepo!

Idya maradzwa udzinge nzara,
Rakamhazhika rinosunga ura,
Bhanana kutapira ufadze rurimi,
Maputi uswatanudze shaya,
Komichi yakazara utonhodze moyo,
Kusimbisa muviri, kukoka simba!

Vakachenjera vanoziva nguva,
Yekumuka kuchatonhorera,
Pabasa vofondoka nevamwe,
Nekuzorora rorova nhongonya,
Yekusima kuchatanga kunaya,
Kukohwa chisati chogwagwadza.

Ndiyoyi nguva yacho yekushanda,
Uchatemwa dzinobuda ropa kudai,
Shingirira wangu, simba mukaka,
Usaore moyo, rugare tange nhamo,
Kugarika kunouya kwega garegare,
Wotandavara, vave mudyandigere!

Vamwe vachiswerotamba nhodo,
Gararirimo achironda nhimbe,
Iwe muka upenye, zvichanaka chete,
Gunguo rakapona nehwakumukwaku,
Mutoro unorema wave pedyo,
Chesechese chine nguva yacho.

Manditema

Zvavati uchasvika kupera kwesvondo,
Chirega kuuya angori maoko,
Kana wakabata kanyama kepondo?
Zvinoremererawoka zvitakurwa,
Hwemubhodoro hutsvuku, hauoni!
Ndokuitawozve munhu azvipira,
Ukama igasva hunotoda kudya.

Haungoeri watsika ruvanze,
Rwatsvairwa naambuya mangwanani ano,
Kutoombera kupinda mumusha,
Imbwa dzepano dzingashaya anodzinga,
Peta muswe usati wavhuramuromo,
Kusvika watekenya yekupiva ndiro,
Tiutange mutambo wekunhonga!

Zvino wakandinzwanani kuti ndakanuna?
Musoro padivi kusiririsa kudaro netsiriri,
Uri hwanyamusha kana homwe hadzina kudzama?
Wako ainetsa, zvinotoda mafukidzadumbu,
Gumbeze, zvipfeko kwazvo neinokuma yeumai,
Wogara wabvisa yechimanda tisazonetsana,
Usiye wandipfekedza jazi chando chino!

Ndaona matopfekedzana zvenyu sambo,
Mbudzi dzangu saka dziri kupi?
Rega kuita nhonho tifambe nendima,
Dzinotsika ndinoda dziri pfumbamwe,
Usina danga’bva zviuru gumi zvepondo,
Yemhiri, mayuwesi asingapeperetswi nemhepo,
Wada kupinda mumambure wovedzera chuma!

Chakashatira zvachakanakira

Vadzidzisi vanobatsira muupenyu,
Rangarira raramo yavo iri pauri,
Ndosaka vachivavarira paunozvarwa,
Kuti ubude uri zidofo remakoko.

Chiremba anokurapa nguva dzese,
Paunorwara mudumbu nemusoro,
Kana ivo mapere akutambisa nhova,
Anokunamatira urwere kuti ararame.

Gweta rako rinonyepera kukufarira,
Charinoda kuti upinde mutsekwende,
Usungwe nekukandwa muchitokisi,
Rozodzoka rouya kukusunungura.

Vekumarinda vatofana vachera,
Rimwe guva ratove nezita rako kare,
Vatoronga naMudzviti nevemabhokisi,
Vose vatomirira musi vaunoti dhi-i!

Mbavha chete ndiyo inoda ubudirire,
Kukushuvira uvane zvose zvainoda,
Nekuda ugare une mari muhomwe,
Ndokunakira zvachakashatira.
