INDYOHESHABIRAYI UMUVUGO VI

Urugendo rw’iyo Ngurube, kuva i Kabgayi kugera i Kigali; itesha Abatware imirimo bagenda bayihatsweho.

Inyumba iryohera n’amaso
Amerwe akica aho itabazwe
Ndavuga izongesha abarebyi!
Ngiyo intamati ihaka Abatware,
495 Iya rwikundwaho n’abasilimu.
Iyo basamarira bayirabutswe,
Iya rwikanyiza abo Batutsi,
Umunsi ihinguka i Kabgayi
Abo mu Marangara ikabakaza ipfa,
500 Yarahatinze cyane Haguma,
Akabya guhanga iyo nzovu amaso,
Aritegereza aratangara,
Intege zitaha arazihebura;
Atumiza igare ryo kujya i Nyanza,
505 Kwaka uruhushya rw’i Nyarugenge.
Bati: « Urarwakira ubusa cyane,
Kuko Isabukuru yegereje, (14)
Mukaba mwarabihagariwe;
Ube uhengeranije icyumweru! »
510 Ati: « Narushakiraga indi mpamvu,
Ngo mputere amasiga muyaga
Nyifatire ahagana ku Ruyenzi (15)
Tujyanirane nyizihirije! »
Bati: « Ese ni iki uvuga Mutware? »
515 Ati: « Munyinjira iki muyizi,
Ko ari yo ndondogoza-barebyi! »
Na we Atanazi ari we Kanimba, (16)
Apfa ayo kuyibona ibungabunga;
Iby’urwo ruhusa biramurenga!
520 Icyo yiringiye kirasohora:
Ingurube ihingutse i Nyarugenge,
Izembagira Abakuru mu maso,
Habura uwibuka kumutota!
Uwitwa Mfizi ari we Alfonsi, (17)
525 Yari yagiye migezo nk’ukwo,
Ubutoni bw’iryo tungo rinini,
Burangaza bene ubwite
Isaruti abahaye iba iy’ubusa:
Kuza imbura-gihe kwe n’imirimo,
530 Abyizigura nta hazabu!
Umwete w’abakuru waragiye
Uhugira ku ngurube rubunga:
Ifata mu maso barahumiriza!
Naho ubwo Semugeshi i Bufundu (18)
535 Asanga Rwitsibagura mwumva, (19)
Afatiye Birasa ahagana i Nyanza (20)
Bari ku kirari cy’iyo ngurube,
Bamwingingira kubajyana.
540 Uwo mu Bufundu akaba anywa itabi
Ariyumvira bimara umwanya;
Ubwo aribwira ati: « Ntibagerayo
Turayisangira barye byinshi,
Mbe nitubirije umugabane! »
545 Ashyiraho akenge arabahakanira,
Ati: « Ibyo biranyereka ko mwembi,
Iby’iyi modoka mukibibarirwa!
Uko muyiruzi iyi iragatsindwa:
Igira amanyembwa aruhije ubwenge!
550 Yumva abantu bayinjiyemo,
Abatari jyewe ikabahishura!
Ikanywa lisansi vuba na bwangu
Igasara nk’iyasinze, igahwera!
Nkazagomba kugura inshinge,
555 Nkaziyitera igahembuka!
Kuyibashyiramo byaba rwana,
Si ibigeragezwa ku rugendo!
Yadupfana aho tuvugiye aha,
Ikadutamaza bikadushobera!
560 Icyakora mwantuma guteguza,
Ndetse mukandika nk’ibaruwa
Ivuga ko mwaba mutahasohoye,
Ingurube ikicwa mukiri mu nzira
Nahabwa igaburo ryanyu
565 Ngapfa kugerekeranya ku ryanjye
Ngo ndore iherezo ukwo byagenda,
Umuntu w’imfura abyihase
Agashira inyota y’iryo tungo
Bita « Indyohesha-birayi! »

Aje arabarembuza baragenda,
Ayo mazu meza barayataha!

Uko yagatashye iryo juru ryabo

Yumva ahongobotsemo ibintu,
Agira ubukirigitwa umunwa wose,

INDYOHESHABIRAYI UMUVUGO IIII

Urugendo rw’iyo Ngurube, kuva i Butare kugera i Nyanza: ibambira umuhanda, modoka zibura inzira.

280 Ingurube iryohera mu misango,
Iya rwisumbura ku ntama,
Nkunda impogazi y’imihore,
Iya rusukirwa n’abo mu nzu.
Isonera amenyo y’abayishiha
285 Ikarusha isake gushya mahwane
Igira imihore rutagugumba,
Igera no mu nda igahwekera:
N’uwayiriye agaheza utubavu,
Ntagugarirwe yabera.
290 Umunsi Padiri uwo ayitanga,
Yaje u Bwanamukari ihaze,
Ihaga amabondo iziba imihanda
Mashuba zose zirahagarara,
N’abadereva baracemererwa;
295 Baravunura bajya i Buzungu
Kubasiganuza inzira yindi,
Kuko iyabo ifunze neza;
Ingurube yuje no mu miserege,
Bakaba batageza kuyikikira
300 Ngo iruhande babone umwanya.
Arabibasubiza uwo mu rukiko
Ati: « Reka mwihimana se na mwe!

Muhutere mujye iyo mwenda!
Na mwe mwigira ako gahinda

Naho iyo ngurube ari yo ibiteye.
Byanze guhita bararikenga:

Bamushiganuje arababwira,
Ati: « Ni ingurube nk’izi muzi!
Ihanitse urwego ijya mu ibondo
Izibye umuhanda murabiruzi.
355 Ababona nabi iri bubagereho!
Ibyo biyikurikiye by’ibiyumbu,
Si ibibwana mutabikeka!
Ni amamodoka yabuze akayira:
Zayigaragariye bugisesa;
360 Ubu zirahindisha amahoni
Nyamara y’ubusa, nta cyo yumva!
Na njye kuyicaho ubu mureba
Ni uko ninyuriye iruhande,
Nca mu bisambu no mu ntusi,
365 Ndagota neza ngaruka hino,
Nza mu muhanda ndikomereza.
Abayirebye bacyitonze
Bahoze bagarura ab’impunzi
Ngo: « Nimugarukire aho muhinge

Abanyagikari bahezereza
Bayitekanye n’utunono,

Ingurube ikangaranya abashumba bo mu Muhozi

Intamati izimba ibinyamahembe,
Dore rukangaranya-bijumba.
85 Ndagiye inyumba y’ijosi rinini,
Iya rufuhira mu bishamba.
Ikaruta intama zo mu bakungu
Ikaruta n’inka zo mu Batutsi,
Ibyo nta n’umwe ukibyijana.
90 Ikarusha inyambo kuba urujuju,
No ku bicebute ikazibumba:
Aho ziba zamuje mu mahembe,
Izirusha umwijima wayisabye,
Umunsi itera abo mu Muhozi, (7)
95 Ikona imirima bukigoroba,
Yaje igambiriye ibijumba
Ijya mu mirenzo irahayogoza,
Ihorobya izuru iba igisongo
Igira ibisinde irabyerereza
100 Isiba imigende iraringaniza.
Imaze guhimbarwa n’umurimo,
Ihatsika izuru ihata ibitengu,
Ikubira hirya ikubira hino,
Icyuho iciye kiruta umurima,
105 Icukura haruguru igeza hepfo,
Amayogi yose iyagira intabire,
Imara ikirumba nticyarara,
Impumu zije ntiyabikangwa
Irazipfukirana itera ahandi,
110 Aho irahacumbika biracika:
Ikubitaho umutonzi yatyaje,
Ikoza ku bwoya irakubeta,
Iwukaza ubugi ngo butagimba!
Isonga ryayo irishyizemo ubumwa,

Iterura irengereza imugongo;
Mu ruharuriro irahacukika,
Ruruta amayogi rurayasumba.
Abahahinze ntiyabaryarya;

Yanga iby’amazimwe ya rubanda
Ihitamo kuhabumba rukumbi,
Ihagira inkuke yo mu nyambo
Abanyamuhozi ibahaka neza.
125 Imaze kurengeza imbavu zose,
Ibura uko yamiragura ibindi,
Igira ibijumba ibisasa neza:
Ku bya kandore iraharambya,
Ibya magabari irabyisegura
130 Ibya gisabo aho yabitinze,
Ibondo ryayo rirahashikama.
Ukwo yagakuye karunganwa,
Ihagika mu ijigo nk’ibitabi,
Nuko ubwangati buyiturutse,

Ibura ukwo irambya birayigora
Ishaka ubwihina birayumya:
Nuko igangara ukwo yahagaze.
Mu nda hibyara amahane
140 Buba uruvuyange birahoga!
Ibiyoka byibuka kwigorora
Abantu bose bavuza induru,
Abararirizi ni bwo babyutse,
Babazanya iyo ntare iroha urwunge
145 Ngo : « Irarohera epfo iyo mu gishanga!
Kandi ubanza atari isanzwe:
Iyo rwabwiga ifite ijwi rindi,
Riruta ay’intare zo mu Rwanda!
Murabe maso itamara ibintu!

Yabatsembaho ayo matungo
Ejo mwarundurwa n’ubutindi

AMAHAMBA Y’ABUNGERI B’INGURUBE

Inzovu y’urwijiji rukabije ubujorojoro
Iya rujegeza-bijumba rwa semitabo,
Noneho amavubi arayarika mu bikobokobo,
Kira nyumba ya rukara rwa Majoro!

Rujugitira-bijumba rwa njunditse ibika,
Imvubu y’icyagane ya ruhungabanya-bitebo,
Isigaye itengerana umuraru wose ugatigita
Ikaba iya Rutare rwa SOMUKI i Rutongo!

Kivurivuri cya ruvungura-byavu,
Imbona-bake ya ruhingitirana-mubiri,
Ni ikitayega zishokanye umunihiro,
Ikaba iya Rukara rwa MINETE!

Ruhiniriza-kibero rwa sendahiriye,
Karisimbi k’amatungo ka ruhonjokerana,
Iyo basigaye bitiranya na ruva-kwaya,
Ikaba iya Rutare rwa Muganga.

Umuduga uhetse umubyibuho wa ruzimiza-mbavu,
Imponjoke yagurirwa amarembo ya ruhimbaza-barebyi
Isigaye ikinana ibicece mu icongori ry’ibifungo:
Ikaba iya rukara rwa Kurimpuzu, nzayibaga!

Gihirihiri cya ruhingika-bondo,
Inyumba irangwa n’umubyibuho ya ruvonyeza-bijumba,
Isigaye ibunda mu byambu ikabigomera:
Iba mu ngoro mu Rukari, aho zogerezwa isahani!

Gihiringitirane cyashiriyemo umurizo,
Mavuta-mingi ya rutenga-bondo,
Iyashinganywe n’abategeka-birori ba Leta,
Ifungiye i Rwinkwavu kwa Sovanye

Rubyagira-nzira rwa ndanze guhigama,
Intamati yamazwe ubwoya no kuneta ya rubyimbabyimba,
Iyo bakekaga umwingo ikarushya abasuzumyi,
Izigamwe na Misiyoni iruhande rw’ifumbira!

Yemwe ga bana baragiye mu bishanga,
Mureke zirenze imijumbajumba n’isayo,
Nizihaga zihundagarire mu bizenga:
Zidashongesha amavuta yo gukaranga ibirayi.

Kamena niboneka ntibahute kuzamburira,
Ahanini muri hoteri harazishaka;
Zirahaka amanoti n’ibikoroti mu mabondo,
Nicyo abasirimu bazikundira murakenge!

Kuyavuga si ko kuyarangiza inyuma:
Uwarata intendeza-matwi yakesha amajoro!
Za runihira zishoka nk’imvura y’umuhindo
Impini igaturika zikwira ibishanga.

Nimugwire Bikoko by’imva-burayi
Nimutungwe isanzure ntimukinenwa!
Nimutebanwe akamaro n’ibinyamahembe
Mubyirukane n’amajyambere y’u Rwanda!
