Rwangu rudo rwakadzama

Rwekutanga ndirwo rudo,
Rwunocheka kudzika zvakadzama,
Rwausingakanganwe kana narini,
Nyangwe kuuyei, kana zvaita sei,
Nekusingaperi, kundida kabisira!

Unoyeuka here kuye kurwizi?
Kwataichera makurwe tose,
Pedze tozorora mubvute remuonde,
Wakazembera pane rangu bendekete,
Mangu muhana uri chirambakusakara!

Zvino wavanana neshoroma mubvakure,
Hupfumi woita zvekukava negumbo,
Asi zvasvika panguva iya yerudo,
Ndangariro dzoita musengwa neni,
Nekuti ndakakusiira chikokoko changu!

Kudoedza kumupfekedza uya mucheka,
Mutema, wandaiti ndikati pfe-e,
Hana yako yodandangura ngoma nerudo,
Ngaatsvage zvimwe pakuti hazvifanani,
Haasiri ini, chituru chamambo hachigarwi!

Kufunga wochimbidza isati yakora muto,
Sekuti wavanikidzwa uchinyemwerera,
Wongoti bedzi pfungwa dzaive kure,
Nguva ndichigwedere, yaenda haidzoki,
Asi mudzako ndangariro ndiri wemo seman’a!

Kudoenda kuya kumatongo kwatakasangana,
Worindira, kucheuka uchiti pada ndichati nzwe-e,
Kana iya nziyo yataiti ndeyedu,
Manzwi ayo zvino haicharevi chinhu,
Kuiterera yongokuyeuchidza ini.

Hapadiwe manzwi apa!
Une mhuri inokosha chose muupenyu hwako,
Asi hazvinei nerudo izvi,
Rwako vakasiira ini zambiringa munyemba,
Zvinozivikanwa bedzi nehana yako!

Joni

Zvosara zvoga zvidziro zvosara,
Misoro yemba yoyambuka,
Dzosara dzoga pwere dzosara,
Bango remba royambuka,
Nyika yangowe chembere neharahwa,
Majaha nemhandara parwendo,
Yatora moyo yasimudza mureza Joni,
Joni tsoka dzose dzonanga.

Kure Joni, Joni hapasi pano,
Vanganiko vaida kusvika vakasasvika,
Dzaivapo shungu dzakatsakatika,
Itsaona mumigwagwa makuva aya,
Limpopo averedza mavhu nemarara,
Vazhinji vakagumira mumatumbu memakarwe,
Kruger izere mapfupa dzakadya shumba,
Kure Joni, Joni hapasi pano.

Hanganwa paJoni hanganwa,
Kuenda vachiti vanodzoka tatokanganwa,
Kunoshava hezvino vatokanganwa,
Tongonzwa serunyemba vatandavara,
Chezuro nehope vakanganwa,
Zvovafambira serunyemba vatandavara,
Chakatuma chikati enda vakanganwa,
Manhanga kutapira voimba vatandavara,
Hanganwa paJoni hanganwa.

Hazvisi zvose zvinopenya zvinova goridhe,
Mukutsvaka mari tsika dzoparara,
Musango Joni unhu hwawe marengenya,
Mukutsvaka mari vamwe dzawe shumba,
Musango Joni maoko atsvuka ropa,
Mukutsvaka ndaramo Joni vauraya,
Pamoyo Joni tangowe maronda,
Hazvisi zvese zvinopenya zvinova goridhe

Paita zvibhakera

Nhasi dzina Chemusaiziya,
Isu handeyi uko kurwizi,
Tinoona chikomana chepamhiri,
Chakaurayisa imbwa yako nezuro,
Payakarohwa ganyamuto negudo,
Ngaatogwinya, nhasi anokuona!

Iri raamai vako, iro raamai wake,
Anoti pwe-e obvongonyodza,
Tiutange mutambo iye zvino,
Asina kudya akaguta imhosva yake,
Hapana anoita chitsoka ndibereke,
Akunda oshewedzwa kuti mukoma.

Asi paye vamboedza mwachewe,
Vamukanda chekumatsenganzungu,
Anakirwa, ambonzwa parere moyo,
Asi ihofori, azokusvitsa chomuziso,
Nevharamuromo, wadziona nyeredzi,
Pedze okugara matundundu!

Kusvika kumba wotongoti zverere,
Kupinda mugota pasina akuona,
Chikafu ndokuunzira nehweseri,
Pashaye anobvunza yatambika,
Madzimai anenge oda kuzivisisa,
Kuti chii chaizvo chatora nzvimbo.

Ndomupaka mupfuhwira

Weduwe-e muchauraya varume,
Nemadirativhange amunovadyisa,
Asina anoziva, zvino akodzongwa,
Mamhepo, muzita remupfuhwira!

Godobori ndawirwa nerushambwa,
Kutizwa newangu murume, ondisema,
Ndipei renyu gachichi remushonga,
Adzoke zvakare kundida moto!

Chitora nyoka idzi dziri mbiri,
Rume nehadzi, ndedzako kubva nhasi,
Kudzitsonya ndiko kudzidana,
Wodzisungirira muchiuno sechuma.

Kadende aka voita zvekuzora,
Mangwanani ega ega nemanheru,
Asi wotanga vageza kuota,
Wagara une ganda remvura.

Uyu vakakuyiva unenge dota,
Imbute inomupa chadzimira,
Apinda mumba mauro wokusha ruwanze,
Wofumotsvaira ari mambakwedza.

Kano kaguchu iropa regudo,
Unongoti tsvoti, donhwe rimwe muputugadzike,
Uwanze mukaka netsvigiri zvirege kuonekwa,
Haazofi akasvipirwa kunze kwemusha.

Sadza wobika neiyi mvura yakageza mushakabvu,
Kana hadyana yave pedyo nekuibva,
Ita zvekutonona, wodikitira ipo pamusoro,
Womupakurira chiri chikanganwahama!

Yandakupa yakasimba, haishandi nguva imwe,
Zvikanyanya haazodi kana kukusiya,
Ongotevera mushure kwese nekutsime,
Kana wapererwa, dzoka ndikupe wekurutsisa.

Ndokuruma nzeve, tamba wakachenjera,
Itsekwende, ukawarairwa uchabatwa chete!
Pamwe audzwa neveukama, pada anyumwa,
Gava rikadimbura musungo unozviona!

Batai mapfumo (Ziva pekuisa X)

Zvavauya kudai hapachina chakanaka,
Rufu urwu, ihondo iyi,
Kukurirwa kana kukunda uku,
Batai mapfumo varume.

Chauya chauya hama,
Kusiri kufa ndekupi?,
Tagara muvhu ndomedu,
Batai mapfumo tione.

Hatingabati kumeso sevana wemakudo,
Tingangotya nerakapinda nyoka,
Yakabika mabwe ikaseva muto yekwaChivi,
Zviedzwa zvinhu ngatiedzei,
Hama batai mapfumo.

Hapana chatingagarira apa,
Kungotarisa setinoyevedzwa,
Tingayuvira tikanzwikwa naani?,
Chivimbo chawo misodzi yedu,
Hama dzinofa batai mapfumo.

Tingatiza tikasvikepi?,
Tichitiza misha tichiti tinoendepi?,
Misha nepfuma yedu tosiira ani?,
Akafa mangani asi anei makunguwo?,
Hatingafuratiri hama batai mapfumo.

Tongopereka zvose tosara nei?,
Topemha isu tichipereka!,
Kufira musango seshiri?,
Ndodyiwa nemakava sendisina hama,
Haapisi batai mapfumo.

Moyo padombo hama,
Kuzvipira isimbaradzo huru,
Kutenda mauri chombo chikuru,
Unotumbura kwete kutumburwa,
Batai mapfumo titumbure mhandu.

Kuyanana nekurambana

Kuroorana vaviri,
Vane pfungwa dzakazvimirira,
Zvasiyana zvido nezvivavariro,
Zviuya hazvivanani!

Kana zvizhinji zvikavirirana,
Kubva ndiko kugarisana hukama,
Kuchembedzana kusvika kukwegura,
Pamwepo moona vazukuru vachikura.

Hazvirevi kufanana kwepfungwa,
Asi kuremekedzana mafungiro,
Kupanana nguva yekufema,
Nekuregererana zvisina maturo.

Mumwe oita mai, mumwe baba,
Kubvumidzana kuve zvamuri,
Uyu mushandi uyo wotamba nepwere,
Poita muchengeti nemurangi vevana!

Hongu zvasiyana nechinyakare,
Apo barika raive redzinza,
Dzimba dzichitongwa nehama,
Mopumhwa huroyi nehunyope.

Zvino chave chimanjemanje,
Vaviri vaviri, wetatu muzvinaguhwa,
Watsvaga zano ita une rako,
Usati waenda kuna taisireva!

Miti kana yamera pamwepo,
Hairegi kukwizana kana kune mhepo,
Chivanhu, ndizvo zvinoita rudo,
Vadani ndivo vakani!

Zvarambisisa kubva moparadzana,
Murunyararo, uyu kwake mumwe kwake,
Zvakaenzanirana upfumi mopatsanura,
Pane vana morega kuvengana.
