Poem

semuti pahova dzemvura mhenyu
dzinde rako, matavi namashizha zvako zvichisimba
kusimbisa matavi namashizha mazhinji
zvichipa mumvuri kumazwi ari kuyaruka
murwendo rwawo rwekuda kunzwika
uko nekokoko!
nhasi hezvo amazwi akatsetseka
ndopembera newe

English Translation

I celebrate with you

I saw you growing
like a tree near rivers of water
your trunk, branches and leaves firming
producing more branches and leaves
giving shelter to new voices
pleading to be heard
far and wide. today,
with refined words
I celebrate with you.
