Chinyakare muchidimbu

Muka iwe watotesa pekurara,
Geza kumeso ubvise mabori,
Marirangwe mhou dzobova,
Unowana dzamira nemhuru.

Usunge madhonza ose ari mana,
Pasi raoma yanaya kwawe kare,
Dzimwe dzose usairire kumakura,
Tozotevera rufuramhembwe.

Rwawe rudziyakamwe rakwira,
Chidzisunungura zvino dzaneta,
Nekupisa kworoita putugadzike,
Nemutandabota machikichori.

Imbwa nematemo zvarongeka,
Nemunyu muchanza kunovhima,
Topfuura nekumariva murutsva,
Havi yenyama hakuna mazuva’no.

Kuona mhandara kubvuma rwendo,
Nguva zhinji rwavo rwuri mberi,
Kutsime, kuhowa nekunoteza huni,
Kwavanosangana naavo majaya.

Zviredzo zvagara zviri kurwizi,
Munyurwi imo munyasi memvura,
Madere nemakwaya hazvina nguva,
Asi huru dzinodyira kwodoka.

Kana yoruma kwira mumushuma,
Ugare divi rimwe iro rine mhangara,
Perera kutsamvu muonde une mago,
Mazhanje hudyidzana nadzo harurwa.

Tadya chakata zvinogadza moyo,
Zvino tonotiva chamunyurududu,
Rakadzikama iro dziva rine ngwena,
Kugarisana nekuremekedzana.

Tozorora manhede pasi pemubvee,
Tichiyeva mikonikoni nemagayaguru,
Kanyururahove kachitamba yako nepadivi,
Kusekedzana tichitandadzana.

Zuva ronanaira kuna amai varo,
Handeyi tinokokorodza mombe,
Rave gumbi kugokoro kwadzinonwira,
Kwadoka matatya zvootangoimba.

Zvipfuyo mudanga tavharira,
Vasikana dzavo huku muchirugu,
Tonanga kudare kunogocha mbeva,
Vakuru pavanorondedzera ngano.

Jenaguru mburetete totamba chisveru,
Nemuchongoyo tobambangura ngoma,
Kwatosara nguva diki yekuzorora,
Sekuti mangwana ndipo zviri.

Kuvhaira

Wafarisa wazvinzwa,
Kurasa muswe kwowoita,
Kushamisira pane vanhu,
Inda inosveta mutakuri.

Kuvhairirwa ini handidi,
Nembambaira inofunurwa,
Kuonererwa paruzhinji,
Tichaonana pazambuko.

Zamba zuva waona bako,
Kuzvecherwa ibva vagarako,
Wawengwa iwe wanhuhwa,
Shamhu yakakumirira.

Vaguta zvekupisa dura,
Chera gomba iye zvino,
Upfire mate nekukasika,
Ndisati ndakuswatudza.

Nhasi igoridhe

Zuro afamba asvava, rave vende,
Hakuchaendwi kana naani zvake,
Mangwana parizvino angori maroto,
Hausviki kana nyadenga akaramba,
Ndosaka zuva ranhasi riri goridhe,
Rirarame zvakazara zvinogutsa hana.

Usashushikana nezvinonetsa nhasi,
Zvichapfuura sekuti uri parwendo,
Pembera kusvika vasvotwa moyo,
Zvamunoona hupenyu idandaro,
Dambakamwe chete seumhandara,
Rapfuura ranhasi dzangove ndangariro.

Takakurira chinhambwe kwaChatikobo,
Kwataipfimba mhandara nemadimikira,
Imba imwe yekutandara ndiyo yekurara,
Kurara here mumba yekubikira semugoti,
Kuona hambautare tichikura mashura,
Kutovhunduka kuti kunze kwashatei.

Nhasi toshora shashiko yakatiyarutsa,
Hembe dzatakaziva apa totevera bunha,
Imwe chete omandikupfeke gore rese,
Bhurugwa rimwe pamhuri yendume ina,
Atanga kumuka musi’wo ndiye anopfeka,
Chitaurirwa mbare dzekumusana!

Harare yaiwe nyikadzino kachana,
Yatakazoziva pano nekugona chikoro,
Kubva kupedza nyota kuenda padziva,
Tikati tiende mbune mhiri kwemakungwa,
Toswerobhururuka munhepo segondo,
Hembe kupfeka kamwe chete nekurasa.

Zvino tosvisvinaka mitauro yevamwe,
Kudzidzisa varungu kutaura chirungu,
Asi rwedu rurimi rwamai tonetseka,
Nekuti tairwutarisira pasi pakuyaruka,
Vana vedu vanhasi kana pakati “baba”,
Rudzi rusina rwawo mutauro rwakafa.

Hupfumi marangwanda, kudya namambo,
Mubhedha uko kurara wakachinjika ndiwe,
Mota mwana yake asika mazvakemazvake,
Vabereki kutukana nekuswedzana kumatare,
Rufaro hapana kuteyana nedovi segonzo,
Moshuwa zuro makakomberedzwa nerudo,
Nhasi igoridhe rirarame zvinogadza moyo!

Hama dzemuroora

Ini hameno chandakaona,
Pane wangu iye mwamuna,
Nguva zhinji ana vamwene,
Hazvinei tsapata rukukwe.

Iro godo rinorema ravamwene,
Kutonga zvisinei navo mumba mangu,
Chembere kugarobwereketa mavi,
Inga vamwe vanoroyera kure vani.

Zitete ripi mvana yakazvigarira,
Kurambwa nemurume nekunyima,
Mwana venyoka wagara inyoka,
Chii chaizvo chavangandipanga.

Babamukuru kuperera pazita,
Kutevera ndari kudzoka dzasukwa,
Iko kuonda idoro harina mbuva,
Ko kutsvaga basa zvinoita vamwe.

Kuroora babamunini kanganwai,
Mbanje nepfambi vanozvivanza,
Mukanwa kunhuhwa chidembo,
Magarisana’bva kutoteya mhepo.

Hama yangu pano ndivatezvara,
Havapindiri nyaya dzisiri dzavo,
Nevana vangu ngirozi dzedenga,
Nhodzero kuneni nerangu dzinza.

Kubudirira kuronga

Mati ihurudza nekuti ane mombe,
Dzaakasiirwa nababa vakaenda,
Ini zvangu ndaramba kuti kwete,
Ane mombe nekuti ihurudza!

Haangochemichemi nguva dzese,
Nyatenga aramba kurutsa mvura,
Chero mbesa dzake dzosvava nezuva,
Sekuti chemukuru anopa omene.

Hove dzinokwira dzine muronga,
Pamunorasa muswe muchirimo,
Hurudza inotsva nezuva kugadzirira,
Kuisa mifudze mune wake munda.

Panozoti gumiguru kana yotinhira,
Murovakamwe nenhimuramwaka,
Nzombe dzake dzafuta nemafuro,
Magejo nembeu zvose zvaringana.

Imi nyope motanga kupaparika,
Nekubwereketa mavi asina maturo,
Kupi kwadzakakorera pamarekete,
Muromo usingamharwi nenhunzi!

Upfumi hauzvikoki kunga urombo,
Kutokwinya nguo kusunga dzisimbe,
Chiri mumuti ndechewagona kukwira,
Zuva rabuda, kubudirira kuronga.
