Izibongo zeSilo uBhekuzulu kaSolomon

Izibongo zeSilo uBhekuzulu kaSolomon
INkunzi elukhanda lubanzi
YakokaMathathela
Evimbel’uNgenetsheni
Yavalel’uButhelezi
Kwathiwa ivimbeleni bafana
Ingangen’ekhaya
Ngoba iyoth’ingangen’ekhaya
Ifik’zone izithole

INsingisi kaNdaba
Ebanga izul’ukuphendula
UMnguni wakithi

Itshe elehle phezulu
Kubo eNengeni

Libonwe ngoNdwandwe
Kanye nabaThembu
ONdwadwe bakithi eGudu
Balinomomozelela
AbaThembu bakithi eSandleni
Balinkwezela
Ngoba babeshaywa yisazelo
Kwakungeseziqaku lezinkomo zeNkosi

ISilo limaphandu
Yebo simaphumlela
Simpondo zingemva nangaphambili
Esifana nemvubu
Ngeyakithi oThukela

Ebuk’izinkomo yanyukubala
Yabuk’amadoda yamomotheka
UNondina kabuso
Ubuso badin’abakwabo
Uncwadi zafika kuqala
KuBhengu eMgungundlovu

UNdaba ofela ngezibomvu
Njengegama lomuzi
Wakub’eMgungundlovu

Isife sikaNdaba
Esobhabh’amadoda
Nanamuhla lokhu
Sisawabhabhile

Unomfaz’omuhle ngemilenze
Isigawuli semith’emkhulu
Emincane yayisal’iziwela
Isinambath’abasibonde
Basishiy’iphini
Siye saphakwa nguGilibethe
Obezalwa nguNgcongcwana
Kwathi uMdlangayedwa
Wasinda ngokuzibalekela

Ngoba edl’uNtabankulu
Ezalwa nguGwazil
KwabakwaMagwaza
Wamqumba phansi
Koludumayo
Akwabindaba zalutho

Wadl’uMasenjana
Ezalwa nguMkhanyile
KwabaseGazini
Wamqumba phansi
Koludumayo
Kwaze kwahuda
Nezimvana zakhe
Akwab’indaba zalutho

Wadl’uZindawule
Ezalwa nguMabheqemana
KwabaseMancwangeni
Wamqumba phansi
Koludumayo
Akwabindaba zalutho

Wadl’uMister Molweni
Kwabamhloph’abelungu
Embangweni eThokazi
Wamqumba phansi
Koludumayo
Akwabindaba zalutho

Wadl’uMister Ashion
Kwabamhloph’abelungu
Wamqumba phansi
Koludumayo
Akwabindaba zalutho

Wadl’uMister Barthalom
EziMantshini kwaNongoma
Wamqumba phansi
Koludumayo
Akwabindaba zalutho
Inkunz’eyedlule ngodumo
Kubo eMsizini
Yaze yasengwa nguShester
Phezulu eChesterville
URobertson wakhala
Kwabamhlophe abelungu

Unkomo zal’ukwanda
Kwelakithi kwaZulu
Ngoba zaliwe ngoMashu
Zaliwe ngoRobertson
Zaliwe ngomfo kaKhambule

Isililo abasikhal’endlini
Kubo kwaZiphethe
Kwakungakhalelwa lutho boNdaba
Kwakuyikukhumbula nje
Kwasendlini kwabo kokaNtuzwa

UBhusha obukhali
UBhush’obhush’amadoda
Uncwadi zaphum’emqulwini
Kunina okaMathathela

UMngoma owethwasela*
Emthonjeni weMbile
Abany’abangoma
Bethwasela
Phezu kweNgoqongo

Ubuxhakazwa ngobemikhonto
Bebuxhakazwa ngamadoda
Ngawas’eNhlophenkulu
Kubuz’uSayitsheni
Engowas’Empangeni
Wathi madoda kwenzanjani?
Bathi sibangel’iNkunzi
Yakithi kokaMathathela

INkosana abayikhiphe nyova
Ekhaya kubo kwaDlamahlahla
Bayibhekisa iMpumalanga
Bathi ayisoze yalibusa
Leli iawoSenzangakhona
Kanti okaNdaba uzakulibusa
Aze ayonethezeka
Iphume maqede
Inyathi kaNdaba
Ithi iphakathi
KukaNdunu noNongoma

Yawajik’amabombo
Yabuk’uMaduna
Ezalwa nguNhlanganiso
Izinkomo zikaMaduna
Zawafaka phansi amakhanda
Zabuk’abafowabo kwaMshanelo

Zikubuke zakwesaba
Ezakini kwaMinyamanzi
Ezazidi’amabala
Zidla kolukhulu ukhalo
LukaManqwashu

UMashoshozela obenjengenyosi
Iyezulwini
Usibasa lukhalweni kwabemukayo
Ubase phakathi kukaNdunu
NoNongoma

Izulu eladuma
Ekhaya kubo oSuthu
Eladuma lathath’iSiyoni
ISiyoni safa kabi
Ngoba safa sizilandel’izindaba
Kith’eMahlabathini

Umbango wasuka ngezibomvu
Ekhaya kub’oSuthu
UGagane lukaNdaba
Lubiy’umuzi wakubo
Lapha kwaDlamahlahla

UChakide obepheth’igula
Ethi angaz’alivule
Ekhaya kubo kwaDlamahlahla

IBululu likaNdaba
Elalingulumi muntu
Elaliluma umuntu
Ngoba elinyathele

UNyazi lukaNdaba
Olushay’amadoda
Nebinezwana layo
Laphelela esiswini

UFezela oneshon’ekhalweni
Ugijime ngokhalo olude
NgoloPhiyane
Yakhethelwa zingane
NgezaseKhatholika
EmaLomeni

IMamba eshaya izinhlu
Phansi kwezintaba ngezikaNunu
Unkomo zabhek’eBombolo
KwakungezawoMsenteli

Kwagijima uMpehlempehle
Ezalwa nguNdabokanye
Wathi inkosi siyiphangile
Kith’oSuthu
Yemukelwa nguThuthuza
Wathi ngiyayithanda
Ngeyesithole sakithi kwaSibiya
UFudu lukaNdaba
Olwazalela ngaphezu
Kwezindlu zamadoda
Zabola zonke
Nanamuhla kalokhu zisabolile

Umthukululi wefindo*
Elaliboshwe ngamadod’amabili
Ayethi silifinde sifindile
Akakho ongabuye alithukulule
Hlanga lomhlabathi
Silo saMakhosi
