Hamba Moy' Omubi


Hamba moy' omubi

Umphefumulo odunguza ekugudleni komfula,
Umphefumulo ontweza namagagasi olwandle,
Umoya ophephuka neziphepho ezintabeni,
Umoya ondiza namaphepha emgwaqeni,
Isiphepho esisukuma nomhlabathi siwutshale emoyeni,
Inhlwelwa busuku emhlabeni wesibili,

Insimbi eyamemeza kwangathi ukuduma kwezulu,
Isidumbu esaqithika kwangathi kuwa inyoni,
Igazi elageleza kwathuleka kwangathi kufe umiyane,
Manje sengikuthathe ngakubeka lana,
Isidumbu sami sisalele ndengelezi laphaya,
Akekho omubonile ngaphandle kwami naye,
Umbulali wami usephenduke ufakazi wokubulawa kwami,
Naye akabonanga muntu,

Manje ngingaphesheya ngihlukaniswe inyama nomphefumulo,
Umuntu onjengami ubhidlize umshado wenyama nomphefumulo,
Ugqashule igoda elaboshwa uMdali,
Ngizamile ukuzishutheka ngibuyisele okomphefumulo enyameni,
Kepha imfihlakalo eka Mdali,

Sengimile lapha nginethwa izimvula,
Ngihamba ngomoya sengaba umoya,
Uma ngiqhamuka bangibiza ngazo zonke,
'Hamba moya omubi'
Kepha angone muntu ngizofakazela inyama nomphefumlo wami.
Okuhlukaniswe ngokungenhloso yo Mdali nomhlanganisi wakho.
Ngisalinde kuba ziphele ngokubekiwe Nguye izinsuku zami zokuphila.

Hamba moy' omubi.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
