Chando chapisa

Kutapira here kwechivabvu,
Patinogocha takakomba choto,
Mwaka vachinja zvino chorova,
Chando-dutu kubva mabvazuva!

Charova nemutoo vakaminama,
Icho chokwidza hamba mumuti!
Makomo mbu-u nechando-chena!
Chinopona chine mudzimu vacho!

Unochiziva iwe ukachiona?
Choita zvekunaya chimvuramabwe,
Mazai echando asina mukare amboona,
Kubuda panze ndekwevakashinga moyo!

Kutaurirwa hunyimwa gore rino,
Vakafa havana chavakaona!
Zvino chatitambisa chepamusoro,
Kusvika amai vevana vaita mapatya!

Mutanda kutorara uchibaka,
Chando zvochobvunza mutupo,
Hameno kukaita chirimo gore rino,
Totenda dzamwa dzaswera nebenzi!

Kana iyo mvura yaoma chando!
Takapedzisira kuona shuramurove rini?
Mhuka kutomirira rorova nhongonya,
Pada inganyunguduka dzikapedza nyota!

Machinjireiko oita nyika kudai?
Kudonda kwayo kuenda kure nezuva?
Chando zvochorova mwedzi mitanhatu!
Gunyana vepi tichigwagwadzwa kudai?

Chorwadza, tozviputira mabhachi,
Dunhu rose zvoromera mazhin’a,
Nzira yekurwizi yamira kupfumbira,
Vana mushambanegore vavanda.

Rugare

Nyika izere matambudziko,
Asi rugare rwunonaka rwatanga nhamo,
Chirega kukungira hata chisi chako,
Apunyaira haashayi misodzi,
Iye akuti rima uyu ati ugute,
Kuti uwe nerugare rwechokwadi.

Hongu ibongozozo nebopoto,
Paita bishi nemadhunamutuna,
Izvi hazvititadzisi kuva nemuchete,
Chirega kudenha zvakazvigarira,
Wotokunya nguo, rukova rwizi!
Kuti pachedu tive nekuteramira!

Chinotanga rudo nemutsa,
Kubata mabasa akarurama,
Chada moyo chagara hachikoni,
Kuzvidzora nemoyo murefu,
Mufaro nerugare zvotevera,
Ndiko kugadzikana kwepfungwa.

Hushamwari nevamwe hwakadzika,
Patinoteerera zvakadzama nemoyo wese,
Chapinda munzeve chavaridza bonde,
Topindura pasina tsoropodzo,
Rudairo neruremekedzo rwosimbiswa,
Havangaregi kuswedera pedyo nesu!

Upenyu hwenungo irima,
Rugare haruzvikoki senhamo,
Kuti rwushanye kutosunga dzisimbe,
Kana rwasvika zvakare harugarisiki,
Chikuni chagara chinoda mukuchidziri,
Kutomiramira, potse rwopfuurira.

Kana vanyengetera kuna Nyadenga,
Ziva anobatsira anozvibatsira,
Tarenda harichererwi muvhu,
Rinogochwa rakabatwa gumbo,
Kurishandisa kuti riberekane,
Kufadza vadzimu iwe woropafadzwa!

Mabasa avapositori

Ndiye Johwani naSafira,
Vakanzwa kutinhira nechekure,
Zvekubhabhatidzana pasi tsve-e,
Vobva Jerusarema kuenda Canaan,
Kumhanyira kwavanzwa Peturo!

Vorondedzera rwavo rwedo,
Rwurefu rwavakafamba netsoka,
Vachibvunza kune vese vavaona,
Kuti zvimwe vangavana shomana,
Inosimudza kwayafira ngoroyemoto!

Muzvinachitoro Judha akati kwete,
Takuranai nayo isvike pano,
Mubairo vezvisakarurama!
Hamuna kuteerera vanaMedia?
Hatitengeseri vane zvigubhu!

Peturo anetsa uyu!
Oshevedzerwa nepanhepenyuro!
Zvino sirivha nendarama hatina,
Kutosimbisa zvakare tsoka,
Asi hatineti kupembedza madzishe!

Tendeukai! Mudzoke kwamabva!
Tsvagai marata murove sando,
Kugadzira migomo nemadhishi,
Mozonotengesera zvenyu Ijipita,
Imomo makare muHighfields!

Muto wederere

Inhamo here yakadai,
Inoita tidye zvakadai,
Muriwo kana muto rudzii wakadai,
Unenge madzihwa kudai!

Remusango nguva yezhizha,
Kana remapindu nyatando,
Madomasi pamwe nehanyanisi,
Madirativhange, tosanganisa.

Yavira hadyana tozvidira,
Munyu zvese nembiriso,
Pasina, kubva toisa dota,
Tabvuvira zvino tokurungira.

Tabura chiona benyumundiro,
kuseva, kunwa pahuro rotsvedzerera,
Tsima ine bvute yotambura,
Pasina nguva yonyangarika!

Wenhafu isu tazvimbirwa,
Muromo wave pfimbi yemashoko,
Zvorema kusimuka patigere,
Tokotsira parukukwe takatandavara.

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.

Kumusha ndiko kumba

Ndaneta kumhanyamhanya,
Pfungwa dzave rushinga,
Hana yaramba kugadzikana,
Ndotswara hundi moyo kumakoto,
Kamukwende taku, simu, tande,
Kuchizororo kunopumhura!

Hazvina kumira zvakanaka,
Iyo yakwavarara yatya,
Ini ndinofa ndagurukuta,
Ndonanga kumusha kunobumhudza,
Takatandavara serunyemba,
Tichibikira vadzimu chekunwa.

Toenda kunofurwa nemhepo,
Tigere mumubvuri wemuuyu,
Kukoka simba ramangwana,
Rufuramhembwe toti nyamu,
Nembwa yangu kunovhima,
Kugura masango anorura.

Kwandinoda kudya ndashuwira,
Nyevhe nedovi,
Gogoya nembambaira,
Maribova nenzarayapera,
Nzimbe ne’pwa,
Nzungu nemagaka!

Tovhaira kutaura kwaabaya,
Kwedu chiropa hachiseveswi sadza,
Tasvikira chinyoro chibage,
Chakabikwa pamwe chakagochwa,
Kana mhandire ine manakire ayo,
Kunesu tine meno edu zvedu!

Hama hadziperi kuvhakachira,
Gaswa rozadzikiswa nekudya,
Patinoswera takadekara,
Tichikurukura dzechinyakare,
Paya tichayaruka pasi chigare,
Tichiseka nhamo kunga rugare!

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!
