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,
Sehama dzamai vako pano!
Izvo zvamunorima nemaoko enyu,
Zvinobva kure hazvina anoziva,
Wozvipereka negapu remvura!

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.

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 vake kare vazvipira,
Iko kumarimuka kunoenda vamwe,
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,
Veukama nazvo vakatyamadzwa,
Chii chaizvo chaakasiira musha?
Kwoodzoka zvino kekupedzisira,
Nzvimbo yekuzorora vatochera,
Weduwe-e, pasipanodya!

Murambiwa

Paye parainyenga raihwarara,
Mavara aro achitaima sendarama,
Kana iro sadza taiseva neuchi,
Nyeredzi matsatse payaturuka,
Ndikati ndiyeye wandakarotswa,
Chido chemwoyo chandasarudza.

Ragarisika, zvino radzika midzi,
Ave madhunamutuna zuva nezuva,
Rongozhambatata parakazvambarara,
Zvave pachena, mavara aive eshato,
Nhamo mumba yapfunya chisero,
Tokwara ivhu nemuromo sehuku.

Mazita jahwi ndoshoropodzwa,
Murambiwa gotwe ravamuhure,
Akarambwa pamusaka pekunyima,
Tsvina, rwake ruwanze harutsikwi!
Kunhuhwa, mumba make hamugariki!
Unoona nenhunzi kuti makafira gonzo.

Nevasingakuzivi vanongobvotomoka,
Vanamuzavazi vagara vanongonyeya,
Marevo mavi, ndoudzwa magaramwoyo,
Nemeso matsvuku, ndopumhwa uroyi,
Neukasha, sevaivepo tichadana,
Weduwe-e, musawanza kutaura!

Vakanganwa kuti ravo ndiro dzenga,
Chidhakwa chinongotevera ndari,
Nepfambi dzaanoti usavi hwedoro,
Chisingazivi nepadiki kuti kune vana,
Vanoda kuriritira nekuyarutsa,
Unoshaya chaizvo kuti zvimbori pai!

Ini ndini wavo musikana webasa,
Suku nasai, ndoitwa mugandidzanwa,
Changu kupukuta ipo parutsirwa,
Taurai zvenyu, dzangu zvino dzadambuka,
Murambiwa ndotambira nemaoko maviri,
Handingagariri ivo mashura akadai!

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 idondo, 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!”
