Pfumvu yesadza paruzevha

Chakabaya chikatyokera!
Vangu mudzimu vakapakata gona rapedza dzinza,
Ivo vandipa ronda kuti nhunzi dzindidye,
Ndofudzwa nepfumvu kusingaperi,
Kubvira ndichiri mudumbu kupfuura kwamupfigwanebwe,
Harwusi rwendo rwevane hana nhete.

Yangu raramo haitori nguva refu,
Kungoti yarukei zvanzi aibva, kohwai!
Ukasatemwa unochekwa nerakagomara,
Ndosairirwa mutsapi mondotangonetsana nezvipfukuto,
Mviromviro yepfumvu yodongorera muruwanze.

Waita muchena zviri nani unosasikwa pazuva,
Mutema unoitwa zvekukangwa mugango!
Pedze zvonzi ngaaende kuchigayo kwaanotsetseka nyore,
Mashereni anetsa, kuitwa zvekuponderwa muduri,
Waita munyama wekuzvarwa uri zviyo?
Uri wenhamo, chako kukuyiwa nedombo,
Wochemera mai vakaenda kuti vakafa havana chavakaona,
Asi wati wadii, uchanyatsoiona nhamo yacho!

Zvino watsetseka hausisina nemuviri,
Pamoto wodzorerwa, woibata pfumvu zvino!
Kuita zvekupotserwa mumvura inovhaira,
Hanzi ngaakwate arege kubuda ari mbodza,
Woburwa masvusvu tucheche tuite zvekunwa,
Hazvina mudiki, mwana venyoka inyoka,
Vamugoti pavanoti vhu-u, zvinhu zvanyangara!
Ave manyama amire nerongo, ndoitwa zvokudhindwa,
Uku neuko ndokandwa kumadziro, pedze ndonzi pasi zhi-i!
Pandinozoburwa, ndinenge ndotemwa dzapera ropa.

Kushevedza samusha sadza, kushevedza nevaagere navo,
Vose voti fashanu, kuita muonerapamwe chuma chemuzukuru,
Zvino ndakomberedzwa nehofori dzakanwa mukaka dzikaguta,
Zvakati bafafa zvidhuzha navanamukoranebhande vodonha rute,
Idzo nyope nemharapatsetsetse hadzisaririri pakadai,
Kwavari dzavira mutswanda hadzichanetsi kujorera,
Nemazitumbu avo anongofadzwa nguva pfupi,
Ndonzi ju-u! Pamoyo, kubaiwa neziso rembayo.

Muzvinapembe samusha kungoti dinhu,
Chave chipitipiti, kuitwa kanyamakanyama,
Ndikanzi mba neruoko rune mazhin’a, ndonzi gwadu nehasha!
Pfini yeakaguta anongoti nyobvo nyobvo,
Pasina nguva ndaitwa chimwandamwanda,
Vondimonya kusweta itwo turopa twapunyuka pamoto,
Mudziva remuto vavhundu ndobvongonyodzwa,
Ivo vakati dungunu nemhiripiri vondipa munyaviri,
Pandinenge ndati pwiti, ndofema kamweya kaye kokupedzisira,
Ndonamata kuti nyadenga nditorei zvenyu,
Ndobva ndanzi nyamu nechisimba, kukandwa kumanhengatenga!

Ndoti pepu nditure befu, ndayamurwa kubva kuna taisirewa,
Bva maroto, kusaziva kufa!
Kupunyuka muhari kwandaita ndichidonhera muchoto,
Ndochibata zvino chakati tende!
Ndonzi mangu nemavende, kukandwa mukanwa munonhuhwa chidembo,
Ndisati ndati nepi, ndotanga kutsengwa-tsengwa,
Kupakanwa kumatadza nemumazino akaora,
Tumedu twasaririra twonzi deru, kurasirwa kumavere,
Vekukara havamire kufema, kudya kusvika vati dangurangu,
Kudoedza kudya gaka, paanoti fovi ndomudzipa pahuro,
Izvo kupedza nguva, ondinwira mvura ndosara ndati nyakata,
Kuitwa kafiramberi, dekedese ndokunguruka kwemazuva,
Mucherima ndongoti bangwa, vachindibira kese zvako kanokosha kandinako.

Marirangwe pohotsvuka hutonga,
Ndoedza kukanganwa chezuro nehope,
Ndofunga ndapunyuka rutsva rwuya rwemadeko,
Nyamba kwete, ngoma ndiyo ndiyo!
Hapana chakanaka, ndotambiswa chepamusoro!
Kutanga ndanyombwa magobvu nematete,
Manyemwe enhafu kuti sadza rakandizvimbira,
Mano avanamudyahandikori zvanzi tine chirungurira,
Vehura hutete voti hatina kurara nekubuda panze,
Ini ndonzi ndava munya, maradzwa, mutsatsakunya,
Kutaura kuno baba voita zvekundigocha pamarasha,
Mai votanga vandishongedza, kundizora dovi,
Vana havana nguva vonditemura ndakadaro,
Neputugadzike ndopisirwa mukanwa,
Rasara iro zvanzi nyikai maheu,
Murombo haaneti weduwe-e!

Vachakudya vanenge vari pachipangano vachisetsana,
Pandinozobuda mubako ave mazvakemazvake, zvino vogomera,
Ndawe nemaperebudzi, chiseko chenyika,
Vose vondiseurira gotsi hapana achada kundiona,
Avengwa anhuhwa, zvino ndati didinya kuimba yangu ndega kure nemusha,
Ndoti zii zvangu, kukotsa muromo,
Handingamuvengi munhu, ibasa rake,
Dzitori tsiye nyoro kundisiya pakahwanda,
Pandinongonetsana bedzi nenhunzi nehonye,
Ane tsinye ndeanokusiya pese pese,
Pfumvu yacho unoiona vadyiwa zvakare nembwa.

Munhanga nemugota

Pano une danga radzo mhandara,
Dzinorara sei munhanga gurumwandira kudai?
Ane mhuri kwayo ndeane ndume seni,
Imi mune mhurikadzi zivai kuti vatorwa,
Vachaenda mukasara matarisana nababa vemusha,
Ndipe zvako mbiri ndinopa majaya ekwangu.

Api, magwara ako aya!
Akazvimba maziso nekuswerodongorera,
Vanasikana vangu vachigeza kurwizi,
Kuti chimutanga tione musikana dzosaba,
Kungodonha rute pasina nenzwi rinobuda,
Ako majaya anofira mugota.

Kunyara ndekwedzinza, nhodzero kuna Samusha,
Vanotoda mikombe mitatu kuti vashame muromo,
Mhengeramumba, paruzhinji kungogara vakati zoo,
Dunhu rondipumha mupfuhwira hwepasi penyanza,
Havazivi parinongoti pote tava tega nditsuro magen’a,
Pane basa paye, unotoshaya kuti zvabva nepi.

Usatsvagiridza zvimhingamupini, kusatenda huroyi,
Tsapata rukukwe, utori naye zvake mujenandebvu,
Hauna dambudziko rehope kurota kwawakarambwa,
Ivo vaenda kundari isu tozvifadzavo kumaricho,
Pfuko dzekuzunde ramambo dzinoodza maheu sedoro,
Kushata kwezvimwe ndiko kunaka kwezvimwe.

Wazoti kudii nedama rakanaka randauya naro,
Rega kutsengatsenga, pamunhondo pamusasa,
Urikutambisa nguva ziendakamwe,
Murume murume haana tsvimborume,
Nhasi ndiri gwevedzi, chitomboti husahwira pasi tsve-e,
Siya ndikuchengetera pwere mwachewe.

Ronga zvifambe, umire kubata shaya,
Unoda ndimere man’a here nokufambira,
Dangwe rako rabva zera, ukavarairwa haribudi munhanga,
Anongotuta kamukwende kake, kwangu oita kugana,
Inga vani zvinonzi rooreranai vematongo,
Ndakuruma nzeve, asati aitwa musengabere!

Kugarira hari sembwa

Zviyo zvako hazvina kunyatsokangwa izvi,
Hauzivi mhamba inoshata musi vayabikwa,
Moshora angu magate mashava kuvazva hwahwa,
Nditambidze mhirimo tiite ‘mhoro doro’,
Iri rinotoda chiwenga nditsukute tufodya,
Zvimwe ndikakwewa ndingabvisa kakuzhazhira.

Usaramba sadza, hwahwa hauna mbuva,
Hadyana yechembere iramba varavira,
Vasvitse denhe vatobika, tsambakodzi yakwata,
Vachatoisa yepiri zvatatsikwa naSabhuku,
Nokukara kwake achatodya chingingiya chaSamusha,
Hapana chembwa nhasi tenzi vararira mutakura.

Vamai kuvhaira kumupakurira mbiya yake ega,
Opunyaira zvino nayo yenjera tsima,
Kuti ati ndaguta zvakona n’anga,
Zvaabvira kunwira mvura chirongo chatozeyama,
Nhasi haashambi maoko paanopedza kudya,
Atozvivanira zvigunwe zvekufamba achinanzvira.

Pwere tadzipa muto, hamuzivi chakakodza nguruve,
Chiriporipotyo dzatsvaira chaenga chose,
Mumwe anga oita zvekunwa vamwe vachida kuseva,
Hameno akakurirepi asingazivi kudyira mudariro,
Ndisvitse hwedza iyo ndivadirire zvangu mukaka,
Kana hodzeko kune vanoda zvavo vakakora.

Doro rako mushonga kushata,
Vamai vabika shomanana,
Sabhuku vatsenga muriwo,
Pwere dzapedza mukaka,
Donditambidza zvako pfuko yemaheu,
Ndikatsenga masese pamwe ndingadzinga nzara.

Mutsetse

Dzidza kumira mumutsetse zvakanaka,
Ngaururame urege kunzvenganzvenga,
Iwe vanonoka enda uko kumashure,
Dai waida kumira nasahwira wamukira,
Nhasi uchawa wekupedzisira kubatsirwa.

Ndaizivei kuti ndiri kudzidza hupenyu,
Mutsetse, chaicho chidzidzo chamandiriri,
Kupfuura svomho naidzo nyaudzosingwi,
Nhasi ndivo magariro muneyechisikirwa,
Kari kai zvako, kutomira mumutsetse!

Vekutsvaga mari mubhangi vakaroyiwa,
Kutorara uripo kuti umukire mberi,
Svondo rose, ikwane yekubhadhara imba,
Waita rombo rakanaka unowana mashereni,
Hamuchina mubhangi yave mumasutukezi.

Wekuzvitupa mutsetse ndivo une nharo,
Hauzivikanwi kwaunotangira nekuperera,
Ringori gonyo kupera hapana pakarurama,
Munonyengana mukadanana imo mumutsetse,
Monetsana nekurambana musati maona mberi.

Tasikirwa moto muziso,
Muchoto toisirwa nyoro dzinotosvora,
Pedze voti tisarudzei tiise dzinobaka rimi,
Mangwana chaiye zvose izvi zvinochinja,
Mutsetse ukava chiitiko chanezuro.

Nyika Dzimu

Yedu nyika inotongwa neVadzimu,
Pamwe neMhondoro dzinosvikirwa,
Dzinotaura ndimi nevari kumhepo,
Dzoturikira kunaMambo mutongigava,
Nehofori dzemakurukota obatsirwa,
Kutungamira ruzhinji pasina saruro.

Masango otipa zvinogutsa dzinza rose,
Miti yemichero nematombo emapfumo,
Howa, huchi, mashonja netsambarafuta,
Ivhu rotipa majuru, ishwa, humbwe nehari,
Mushiri nemhuka dzesango tovana nyama,
Kugachidzana nezvepamusha zvipfuyo.

Gumiguru kungoti vhu-u toita masoso,
Mutambo wekukwezva mvura kunaya,
Tovabikira doro Vadzimu kuombera,
Dundu rose romera manyemwe emhuru,
Siku nesikati todzana, kudya nekunwa,
Nyadenga azvimbirwa’bva orutsa mvura.

Zviri mugwara, inga zvose zvakati tasa,
Zvirango zvoitwa pasina kupaparika,
Vabiki vemandiriri vane magate anonatsa doro,
Vabati venyama vakatendeka vasina neudyire,
Yasasikwa yanuna, zvidhakwa zvodonha rute,
Iro gotora reSvikiro rorega kurasa muswe.

Yaramba kunaya ndiNyadenga aridza tsamwa,
Sabhuku kutomuka pahunotsvuka hutonga,
Ogumbatira nhekwe yefodya kunanga kwaMambo,
Kungoti korokoto, voperekedzana kwaMusikavanhu,
Kunopira zvichemo nekusvitsa maoko kumusoro,
Pakudzoka hairegi kunaya yematsanza.

Chave chamupidigori, misodzi iya rave ziya,
Kusunga dzisimbe torima zvine pundutso,
Maricho adzo mbesa dzemhando nemhando,
Ave maguta zvino tokaka dumbu sengoma,
Todandaura mbira nehwamanda kupa kutenda,
Kupembedza Vadzimu vatinoda samare.

Ndafunga mbire

Ndagarisa muno musango ndaneta,
Kwemakore kuvhima pasina chimuko,
Kubatwa huyanga semombe yemashanga,
Iyo nhava maburi yaramba kuzara,
Ngoroyemoto kushaya kana tsaru zvavo?

Bata homwe unowirwa nechadzimira,
Vanokutorera pamhene pano pamusika,
Gurumwandira zvinotengeswa jahwi,
Kana wembanje vodaidzira madiro,
Rozara bhazi kunanga Kumakomoyo!

Rwendo ndokungurutsa nendangariro,
Ndinongoyeuka bedzi kusimuka kwebhazi,
Asiri andibata bendekete ndatopfuudzwa,
Kuti nyamu ndiburuke, hana kurova nhai,
Ndonzwa chando kudedera serutsanga.

Ndinowana dzakadii hama kumusha,
Makore ose aya kuti vachandirangarira,
Richava nyunyuto here kana rufaro,
Zvave zvekutorovera moyo padombo,
Aniwa haachatyi kufamba mudova.

Babanguwe-e! Ndiwe here mwanangu,
Tarira misodzi yangu mokoto nerufaro,
Maziso hachanyatsooni, wakadii zvako,
Aparwa aparwazve zvichishaya shumo,
Swedera padyo, kana idzo nzeve dzovhara.

Ndafara mambo vangu, chikuru kuonana,
Ndawana pokurevera nhuna dzangu dzose,
Rega ndizokuratidza parere baba vako,
Ivo mabvi kusimuka ave makakatanwa,
Nyama dzaora, tangove hari dzofanzirofa.

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!
