Uzondirangarirawo

Mudumbu machema nzara munoda kuguta,
Tinorwushuvira rugare tinorwuda,
Kwariri zambuko enda usaneta,
Chiriko chekupfumbata usagare pasi,
Chikumbiriso mudiwa ndicho ichi,
Chikumbiriso baba wevana ndicho ichi,
Uzondirangarirawo.

Ichi chigutsa wepamoyo,
Zvaunoona zvimhingamupini,
Hazvizopiri gotsi nekuti vapa gotsi,
Zvichandivana zvikobvu nezvitete,
Wawako kure mudiwa,
Wawako kure baba wevana,
Uzondirangarirawo.

Chinangwa kuguta hongu,
Kukohwa munda werugare ishuviro,
Zvauchasangana nazvo zvizhinji,
Zvakasiyana nerugare mavhu nemarara,
Ugozova nemoyo mumwe chete mudiwa,
Murugare nemumatambudziko,
Uzondirangarirawo.

Mhuri ndinosara nayo enda,
Zvichaivana zvichandivanawo,
Hazvineyi kuti haupo ndiripo,
Ndichavavhumbatira sehuku pamazai,
Kunopambara mudiwa usarega enda,
Kunopambara usarega baba wevana,
Usanokoshiwe chete kuti ndiwe jongwe pano.

Enda zvako murume wangu,
Endai zvenyu baba wevana,
Famba zvakanaka murume wangu,
Nemidzimu ikuchengetedze musango dema,
Usanotsindike mwena unobuda ishwa,
Zviviri zvitatu zvapinda munhawa utiyeukewo,
Usanovire muhari yemukaka sebete.

Dambudzo

Musarera dambudzo,
Rinodzoka rokutambudzai,
Ragara iro pachigaro,
Imi moita varanda!

Ritsvagirei nyaya,
Musangano uriparadze,
Musavarairwe naro,
Dambudzo richakutongai.

Kunyanya imi wechidiki,
Vasingazivi chinonzi hondo,
Zvigadzirisei iye zvino,
Ripere pachine nguva!

Edzai napose pamunogona,
Kurizviringidza-zviringidza,
Pada moripa muchetura,
Zvimwe ringaita kafiramberi!

Zvino ravane mwedzi misere,
Rikaera radzika midzi,
Kuribvisa ichava mhirizhonga,
Nhamo yanamira pane imwe!

Iwe neni

Iwe neni,
Sezvose zvakanaka,
Zvinouya zvakabatana,
Nyevhe nedovi,
Bhande nebhurugwa,
Mari nedumbu,
Chingwa nemajarini,
Solo naMutsai,
Iwe neni!

Chirenga kurebesa meso,
Womira kurerutsa chiunu,
Ndicho here chimanjemanje?
Chekumhanyidzana netsikombi,
Dzinopfuura sedova mangwanani,
Mombe nedhongi hazvikweverani,
Pfavira ngoma mumwe vangu,
Dzikama rwendo rwurefu,
Hunoda vayanani,
Iwe neni!

Nhasi wave duma,
Kubudikidza neni musimboti,
Asi ndoita sechimhingamupini,
Ndiwe vakwira kumusorosoro,
Une parefu pekudonha,
Woedza kubatira mashizha,
Zvoshaya basa watodonha,
Makore afamba wakwegura,
Kusimuka mabvi zvonetsa,
Usina wako mubatsiri,
Iwe neni!

Ndini chandavinga,
Chandabata ini handiregi,
Nyangwe ako magaramoyo,
Kundidaira nenzwi rine hasha,
Wondidzwokora neziso rinotaura,
Ndongokuchidzira moto wamhova,
Zvimwe pada ungabaka rimi,
Pano ndadzika midzi, handiendi!
Kupi kwekuenda kusina wangu?
Tiri tose mwachewe narini,
Murufaro nematambudziko,
Iwe neni!

Pashaya chimuko

Zuva rabuda,
Rodziya, rachekanyika,
Ziya romimina pahuma,
Pashaya makore anotonhodza nyika,
Ngoma ndiyo ndiyo,
Vaitonga vachiri kutonga,
Zvinotongwa hazvina mhoswa,
Chero vachiri kutonga,
Simba richiri ravo,
Ane chake ane manyawi,
Mutambo ndiwo ndiwo,
Zuva idzva rataikarira,
Dzokono rabvongonyodzwa,
Shure kweaya mavhoti,
Akabuda pakati pehusiku se’shwa,
Mucherima pasina anoona,
Zvichipereka aya masikati,
Ruzhinji rwajamuka kuti kwete,
Yangu miriro yabirirwa,
Handizvo zvandaita mubhokisi,
Mandaiwe ndega ndichinyora,
Marima nechisi vatungamiri,
Ivo zvinyoronyoro votsanangura,
Vachipfipfinyika zvavo kuseka,
Zvinoti ruzhinji kuvhota,
Zvozoti vatongi kudaidzira,
Kungoti zvinotevedzana,
Asi zvinhu zviviri zvakasiyana,
Regai kuti pedzera nguva,
Yekunokotsira zvedu muparamende,
Masoja achakugadzirisai,
Mudzoke kwenyu kubako,
Tichakushevedzai kana tokudai,
Makore mashanu anotevera,
Tokushandisai zvakare nhando!

Ndewangu iyeye

Ndakamuwana ndatambura,
Mibvunzo gumi nefararira,
Misodzi neropa zvaerera,
Kwagodobori ndabhadhara.

Kuna musiki ndagwadama,
Mune yechisikirwa ndakatama,
Kutsvaga wandinoda akadzikama,
Wandinodada naye zvakadzama.

Makore nemakore apindana,
Vawengi pachavo vapedzana,
Yavo moyo ine godo yapetana,
Handimusiye, rukudzo tinopana.

Iye anodidawo ndinozviziya,
Kungondiona muviri wodziya,
Hapwa dzake dzotanga kuswinya,
Nemuchando omimina ziya!

Tiri mapatya zvamunoona,
Aya pachiuno akabatana,
Kwaendwa iye neni kuteverana,
Nekuhuni hatisiyani kana!

Wangu wepamoyo ndinaye,
Wekuswera nekurezvana naye,
Ndewangu wavatsonya iyeye,
Tsvagawo wako wega, musiye!

Varume ndevamwe

Havana zvizhinji zvinovanetsa,
Kupinda vovana zvavanoda vobuda,
Vakapakata papfudzi sahombarume,
Kwete kusvorotenderera nhando,
Takabva neko kumhunga hakuna’pwa.

Panotsva ndebvu kudzimurana,
Pasina kubvunzana twakavanda,
Afirwa agara haaringwi kumeso,
Hazvinei kushaya kana kuwana,
Maoko kuwanda kutsonza ndima.

Kumba kusvika pwere dzorota,
Ungazopfuurwa nemafaro uwete,
Warara aenda nemuromo wake,
Kubasa womukira mashambanzou,
Kunaka kwehope hakuna ndima.

Kana ihwo hwukamasahwira,
Hungori paganda, haunyanyodzika,
Chero, akuruma nzeve ndewako,
Kungoitira kuti hwahwa hutapire,
Kuvaraidzana, kusesedza nguva.

Zvanzi bhururu venyu ari panze,
Hongu, ini ndogutsurira musoro,
Tatamba makore anokwana mashanu,
Kudya pamwe gango nejenamuponesi,
Asi nezita rake nanhasi handirizivi!

Yagara inongowa mukoma-mudhara,
Ha-a, hamuite mukoma makapenga,
Paushamwari hwedu tichikwenyana,
Heyi, mudhara muri kumberi mhani,
Kure uko, sechigaro chamufundisi!

Makarima dondo

Musha wenyu ndiChikunguru vasekuru,
Ziiii tonho godo rechando,
Nenhunzi dzatama hadzivanikwi,…
Mushaiko unoraramwa neane chaakatsika?.
Mushaiko usingarire ngoma?.
Kuimba tinoimbirwa nemazizi,
Ani iyeye anotaura naani?
Ani iyeye anoseka naani?
Kuseka kuri mumusha uno ndekwemapere,
Musha uno vaita hwai nemapere,
Matura emusha uno azere nyoka nezvidhoma,
Shuviro ndeyeiko ipapa?.
Chionai vasina simba toyuvira,
Toitwa mutemarege wembada,
Sasekuru gudo sekuru muchingoti tsviramo,
Musha uno mauita kanyika,
Zita rimwe, mazana nemazana evanhu,
Zita rimwe, mazana nemazana emitupo,
Zita rimwe, mazana nemazana ezvidau,
Chionai makundano ezvizukurusikana,
Mumwe nemumwe ouya akabereka wake,
Chionai makundano ezvizukurukomana,
Mumwe nemumwe oda pake pekutonga,
Chionai mafashamu emvura,
Imba neimba yavapachitsuu,
Masikati hakuchina rangowa dima,
Kukudzana hapachina kwangowe kungonongedzana,
Humwe hwaparara yawe miranezvako,
Ndima yerudo yamera mipangara,
Madzitateguru makarima dondo,
Madzisekuru makadya matunduru,
Zvipiko zvamusina kubata neenyu maviri?,
Hudyire, kuponda nemeso meso,
Kutsika pasingatsikwi nekubata – bata,
Hwoni hwenyoka payenyu moyo,
Nhasi neuziza zvizukuru totambura,
Madzisekuru makadya matunduru,
Madzitateguru makarima dondo,
Redu dura rakazara nhamo nemheremhere.
