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!”

Unoendepi

Chinobhururuka chinomhara!
Segondo, pedyo naMukuvisi,

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,
Pomoburutswa navamutyairi,
Zvanzi rinoremerwa rikati pudzu,
Kukwira Matsororo netsoka,
Kudzoka mubhazi rati tunhu,
Panzira inoenda kwaMutambara,
Ipo modongorera paChimonyo,
Moruyambuka rwetatu Mvumvumvu,
Bva n’ai kwadzo ndedzomucheche,
Dzomukuru dzinoreva kudya,
Vamukokeri vomuzorodza pakare,
Nhedziwa musha mukuru!
Muchitenga tushoma twasaririra,
Madomasi, hanyanisi nekanyama,
Nedoro dzvuku remubhodhoro,
Rekusvika paruzevha makapfumbata,
Nekuzvivaraidza, zvamave pedyo,
Kubva pano zviteshi zvavanda,
Kuti pote masvika paBumba,
Momonyoroka kudzika Raimu,
Yambu Shinja mave paMutsamvu,
Mosiyana nenzira yekwaShinja,
Pedze moyambuka Munyanyazi,
Muuyuweburi moburutsa vamwe,

Movangarara nemakata, hupoterera,
Ine minzwa ndiyo nzira youshe!
Pasina kutsauka, nanga nemujinga,
Inoenda Chipinge mosiyana nayo,
Dakara mati tunhu pakati pemakomo,
Panonhuhwira zvinanazi zveChikukwa!
Pakati manimani, modongorera Putukezi!

Asi uchangondida

Zvandakaita zvinorova!
Zvagara zvichikuchemedza,
Zvino zvaunorambira padivi,
Chii chaunoona mudiwa?

Ndinokuregerera nguva zhinji,
Kana sirivha nendarama karibe,
Zvinotaima zvekukupa handina,
Wongoramba wakati neni nama!

Haudi kunzwa parere mwoyo?
Kunomhanyirwa nevezera rako,
Iko kwavanorohwa matumbu,
Zvaunongoswera pedyo neni?

Pfungwa dzamira kushanda,
Nyama kuunyana dzaneta,
Hapasisina zvitsva zvichabuda,
Ndangowa hari yofanzirofa!

Handizivi kuti unobvepi?
Kana mheno kwawakakurira?
Ndinotenda nekuvimba neni,
Vashoma kwazvo vanozvikurira!
