Lekwe

Flow down river of no return,

Meander through many

corners and crevices

of our ancestral hills and valleys;

shy away from time-aged rocks

that knows no response

to your murmuring voice,

whispering turbulent tide of circumstance

In your relentless journey to the sea.

 

Flow down river of no return,

let your water nurture

the shrubs and bushes,

to rekindle the seasons

of growth and development;

let the sun send its ray of life

to reveal the mysteries yaBadimo;

let the breeze keep birds

chirrup from tree to tree,

to orchestrate your rhythm

In this long journey to the endless sea.
