NDUNGATA CIA RŨGAMA

Wa ikũmi-nĩ na kerĩ, ĩgĩthagathaga njama
Matharaita ka!mwĩrĩ; mbũtũ kĩni ĩkĩrũma
‘ĩtigaga bũthi ngĩrĩ,’kĩhĩta ita na muma
Ndungata cia rũgama, cokia mũkaro rũĩ

‘Tũtingĩkwa ikĩrĩa,’ mĩrani ĩkĩrarama
‘ũkĩrai ‘nyuĩ ngĩa, yakia mbura na nduma
ĩĩ tũkũũmia ng’a thĩa, mũ- kũwenjera irima?’
Ndungata cia rũgama, thũ kũhehenja ta mbĩa!

Ngarari igĩtũrĩka, itu kĩiyũra nduma
Njambio igĩtuthũka, thatũ ‘gĩthika irĩma
Thĩ nĩmbara ‘gĩatũka, ciara thũ cierũma
Ndungata cia rũgama, mĩngati kũhaka ndaka

Njirũngi rĩera-ini, kamatimũ‘kĩinama
‘wũũi! Tũri thĩna-inĩ,’ikĩrĩrĩra ngoima
‘wũũi! Tũri ndirũ-inĩ,’ ikĩrĩrĩra ikiuma
Ndungata cia rũgama, thũ kũhira ‘kombo-inĩ
