Sadza

Maiwe-e! Itsima yahombarume here,
Wasverorimbinyuka muzuva nebasa,
Kubva tinoritema isu vanamadyirapanze,
Nemusuwa weganyabvu rinopera chimbi,
Ndisunungure chuma chiunu chiregedzeke,
Undipe komichi yemvura yakati tundu,
Woudza vavakidzani kuti takatama.

Kuribata basa hunge watsindira rinopisa,
Hakamukaka hofori dzerume idzo kusimba,
Ishe nemachindarume hunge vane mimba,
Kumonya tsima dzine bvute zuva nezuva,
Zvidhuzha kupinda mumba nedivi segakanje,
Zvinotangira pamoto hanzi kuravira hadyana,
Chinokoro kuti tundu nemusuwa muruoko.

Zvinongoda chibage, njera kana zviyo,
Dudu muduri hwoita hwakatsetseka hupfu,
Yavira tsambakodzi wototanga kubika,
Woita zvekukurungira risaita mapundu,
Urege rinyatsokwata ringaita mbodza,
Kungoti monyei bura uzvibaye wega,
Rikazoti nganganga rodzipa pahuro.

Kana makobiri anetsa kubva wotemura,
Asi rinongodaka kuperekedzwa neusawi,
Mashizha ane dovi anongoitavo zvavo,
Chembere dzagunhana kana mutikiti,
Rinotsvedzerera pahuro derere chiororo,
Murwi kunzi dzii pasina nguva waerera,
Inhapitapi, mutakunanzva, gotsi papata.

Kubva nekanyama unoseva ukazvimbirwa,
Usakurumidza kumedza kutsenga uchada,
Yemombe, yembudzi inongonaka parurimi,
Asi sadza nenyama yehuku machikichori,
Mutupo paruzhinji mudzimba umo inyama,
Zvino vamwe tichapera meno mukore uno,
Tingaswerera kubvisa moyo wematemba.

Ndati shamba maoko uzvinokorere,
Manje zvowokumba chaenga chose woga,
Kudya zvekumhanya asi unoera Chihwa,
Une muromo chipfukuto chinopedza dura,
Wakakurira kupi unotimba neruboshwe,
Gogogoi nguva yesadza mangwanamangwana,
Waguta zvekupisa dura, chibva pano!

Varidzi vemwana

Chandakatadzira musiki chikukutu,
Urombo hwemukwambo chikwambo!
Hunotoda kubika doro zvese nesvikiro,
Dzinza rose kushaya akaenda kuchikoro,
Veukama voti regai mwana aroorwe.

Mati moyo muti unomera paunoda?
Kwete makore atiri kurarama ano,
Jaya rangu rakandigura kunorira,
Kuuya nenhenha, ikasaba inoroya,
Iko kuonda mukati haarwari?

Zvinombotiunzirawo vana vedu,
Kana usina mari jekawozve pameso!
Shata divi rimwe ritambe nepwere,
Todii, ngaauye zvake ateme ugariri,
Wada chemungozva wobata mwana.

Zviuya havivanani chokwadi,
Wangu akazviwanira guvhudende,
Butwa zvaro rakazvigarira,
Hunyope ingwarati kudya irere,
Mapudzi anovira kusina hari.

Vevamwe vachifamba nemichovha,
Shangu yemukwasha yatsveyama,
Iye munhu ndeasingagari pasi,
Hongu zvazvo murombo munhu,
Asi wangu haaende panhamo yakadai!

Kupfuma imombe

Ita mombe paruzevha tikurume nzeve,
Ndarama yechivanhu kubva chinyakare,
Kana pari papi zvapo parere moyo,
Une dzinotsika zvose zvakati twasu,
Zvinoda dzakasangana hadzi nehono,
Kubatsirana ose mabasa epamusha.

Nzombe huru dzakabva mukurerwa,
Mhuru ngadzivande tsiru dzinoita zamu,
Kana dzava mhou mukaka zvino chakata,
Hono dzosunurwa kuti ave majongosi,
Junju, horeka, mhandamba dzopingudzwa,
Posara inohwihwinya handira yekuberekesa.

Kuisunga ngoro inzombe dzine muchiti,
Maguta pakurima madhonza akasimba,
Wosunga forosi akatendeka kurudyi,
Haidi chikoti kana mutungamiri,
Kutongorima nemheterwa nemuridzo,
Munda vagara vadetsudzwa nendove.

Rinobatika here basa usati waimwa hobvu,
Kana iri tsiru nzenzi manhenda waikama,
Mombe yenjeni kutokama wakasungira,
Chitenga yako urege kuramba wakaringe nzira,
Paita havi tema dore wokanga nyama,
Dehwe wokakata nemunyu mangwana rukukwe.

Wangu mukorore otizirwa zwana madeko,
Nemukunda Samanyanga weganda gobvu,
Kunyangara zvake pamumhu pabadza ibhinya,
Tezvara voshevedzera gumi nenhanhatu,
Ambuya vanodavo inotsika yechimanda,
Pedze moti mukwasha mukuyu hauperi kudyiwa.

Sabhuku akatisiya paseri pechikomo,
Neumhare hwake dunhu rose roungana,
Takaritema rino bhuru rakasvika renhevezo,
Makurukota padare kurwirana yakagochwa,
Isu taishanda parufu kana kunzwa payakaenda,
Takazoita svoto neramba pakurova guva.

Uyu sahwira Chaitezvi pamhiri perukova,
Ngozi yemwana yamutambisa chepamusoro,
Zvino ngava zvainopedzwa nekuripa,
Vatadzirwi vakati vanoda shanu dzinofema,
Anodziwanepi iye ari zvake musvuuganda,
Dzinza kutopera pamhene takatarisa.

Mwaka

Ndiro Zhizha yonaya yemheni nemabhanan’ana,
Ngava naSaManyika mungoonana ano Maenza,
Mbudzi pazamu, Zvita mabiko neNdira mumunda,
Patinoshanyura makura nekudyara minda yose,
Pedze kutora muzira pakusakura nekukofora,
Hapana inofura iwete mabasa gumi nefararira,
Parinopera Zhizha matura anenge ozeyama,
Asi mbesa dzitsva totanga kunhonganhonga.

Matsutso ndiye KKK: Kukadzi Kurume Kubvumbi,
Maguta kune vakarima sekuti mbesa dzaibva,
Kune nyope inguva yekuruta nekukumbirisa,
Kukadzi oita maminimini ekunyima evanhukadzi,
Ndume dzotevera neadzo mashiripiti aKurume,
Hanzi ndodanirwei ini ndagutira mumunda kare,
Kwotevera Kubvumbi painonaya yekupedzisira,
Ino nhete isingazorori kupfunha isu tichikohwa.

Chando chichichi: Chivabvu Chikumi Chikunguru,
Todunguzira Chivabvu chakanaiwa nemubvumbi,
Chokosha chinyoro vazhinji vatotanga mhandire,
Patinenge tichiponda chibage nekupanda nzungu,
Chikumi chando chobvunza mutupo, kutorara uchibaka,
Zvirimwa pamatara patakazvisasika zvanuna,
Chikunguru nemavara ake enhunguru wodadisa,
Patinopura nekuurusa zviyo mutsapi tichirongedza.

Chirimo kuzorora mazhinji mabasa emumunda,
Asi hazvirevi kugarira maoko nekutevera ndari,
Nyamavhuru kurongedza matura nekusarudza mbeu,
Rwuchivhuvhuta ruwanzamatare tichigadzirisa minda,
Gunyana painonaya yegukurahundi togadzira musha,
Nekutsvaga huni kumabakwa kwadzinorira nyenze,
Gumiguru rouya nemunakamwe munongedzo weZhizha,
Kubva pano wave mutserendende kune vakagadzirira.

Tariro

Mukutanga kwerino gore,
Taive netariro yekukunda,
Tiri pachedu tichikwenyana,
Tichiti zviuya zviri mberi.

Vazhinji vaiti mutambo vepwere,
Manyengedza pfungwa efodya,
Inozadza matama ose nehutsi,
Husingasviki nekuguru kwese.

Zvavo zvinotarisika sezvine urongwa,
Asika nzanga inokura ndeyerema,
Zvatiri pari zvino hazvinei,
Kugadzirira cheuviri mangwana.

Zvino zvawaraudzwa muto wegwaya,
Zvanzi mangwana ufire mudziva,
Simba mukaka shandisa iyoyi nguva,
Sekuti humhandara idambakamwe.

Usakadheerere kamoto kamberewere,
Kanopisa matanda nemasango mberi,
Ramangwana rakajeka toshura mare,
Patichapembera nedzedu nhureture!

Kwatinobva kure

Nyika ihombe kwazvo tinokwana tose,
Mombe madhongi nehwai ifararira,
Panhabvu tukomana injodzi munhandare,
Tusikana tuchitamba dhere nemamhuza,
Inongova njakenjake nharaunda yose,
Kana anokendenga kuti kunze kunei,
Hapana kurwirana mweya wokufema.

Kumakomo emhute masango anorura,
Kwatinoswerodzifudzira nekuvhima,
Pfumo kuruboshwe, tsvimbo kurudyi,
Demo papfudzi, imbwa mumashure,
Kuhwandirana nengwe totizira muninga,
Zvaitika zvaitika bhurugwa rebenzi,
Risingaziwe mberi kana shure.

Nzira yamabhazi anoenda kudhorobha,
Iri kure kwazvo hapana kana ruzha,
Tumichovha tunodzika kuno muhuruwa,
Tuchiperera kuchikoro uko kwaShinja,
Tete vauya pazororo kutosunga ngoro,
Kuyambuka Chitumanyere nemumvura,
Kunotambira chingwa nejemu dzvuku.

Apa pane hurudza yenjera nemichero,
Apo pagere muvhimi nemumori weuchi,
Nzuzu mubati wehove iri nechepapapo,
Uyo anotamba nembezo kuveza majoki,
Pamhiri mupfuri vemapadza nemapfumo,
Paseri anobika rezviyo kungoti mukombe,
Pabira wotoimba manhanga kutapira.

Kupfunya ndekwe avata nayo,
Isu maguta tinorara takatandavara,
Ndarama hatineyi nayo mudunhu rino,
Tinoicherera pasi kunze muruwanze,
Nekuti chedu kuchinjana navavakidzani,
Rungwanangwana patinomutsana,
Tichibvunzana mamiriro ehupenyu.
