Huna lulu akakaponeja ka kule hado na nkuluye ombiti akakakubhija ahipande uko gagwilaga. Nkuluye lung’wando akika wangu wangu kulwande lya kabhili lya linti akaja kabala hadololo. Huna lulu akapandika ikanza lya kuyomba, Nkuluye mbiti, nizuka jigano jisoga gete”. Nkuluye mbiti uyomba, nahene niganilage. Nkuluye Lung’wando akahaya,

Noni nhale ikimbaga

Noni ndoo ikimbaga

Nzuki inhale ikasumaga

Nzuki indoo ikalumaga

Munhu ndoo akalamulaga

Aliyo nduhu umhayo

Bhutoshije bhugotaki

Ipundu muntwe?

Huna lulu nkuluye mbiti akiganika hangi gugab`ab`a untwe na kwiganika.

Hanuma uyomba ulu atujibadija imbuki yaho. Nkuluye lung’wando uyomba, nzugu nkuluye mbiti, nikubhijage na nuguwila duhu imbuki yaho.

Aliyo ijigano jeniji jihayile munhu ang`we bhuki bhudoo tame, apandike isala lya kujibadija. Unene namanile uko bhuli ubhuki ubhusoga.

Huna lulu nkuluye mbiti adubhuhayaga ubhuki wenubo aliyo alihaya anfumbulile imihayo yeniyo.

Agankubhija kushika mpaga ushika hipande Iya mhembo ningi ja bhuki.

Nkuluye lung’wando akahodisha bhuli mhembo nose uyibhona imo yinabhuki wingi gete, ung’witana nkuluye mbiti ung’wila, “Nzugu ikuluye, unene nakugugonda hadoo upandike kutula ntwe gwako na kulamba ubhuki ahobhulizwila”. Huna lulu ugugundyamya, nu nkuluye mbiti akegeleja ntwe, nkuluye olung’wando akagwinamika gete mpaga gwikila hantwe go nkuluye mbiti. Nang’hwe uduma ukufunya hangi imhembo yulemela kuntwe. Aho Wabhona giki untwe golemela mo, nkuluye mbiti wandya kwidamukadamuka.

Imo nzila bhutung’wana nuse o mbiti bhakigisha, use ombiti ubhuja, bhebhe nkuluye lung’wando, omonaga ung’wizukulu wane ung’wipolu‘? Nkuluye lung’wando ushosha, ng’hana aliho kwenuko, digushagano nang’hwe na bhuyegi bhutale, niyo diganilaga na majigano, ni haha ung’wizukulu oko aliho uko numa aligema ugujishosha ijigano. Hamo ubhebhe bhabha ukudula ukushifumbula, namhala ombiti ushosha, nahene jiganage. Nu nkuluye olung’wando ugana;

Noni nhale ikimbaga,

Nahene nduhu mhayo, igelelile bhugota ki.

Namhala wa mbiti akanunhya itumbati hadoo, akiganika aliyo atajidebhile imbuki ya jigano ulung’wando nose wandya kuseka na kwimba.

Ipembo lya nzuki,

Ukuntwe ya ipundu.

Ise ombiti akiganika kushisha akandya kushimana imbuki ya shigano akadahya unkuluye lung`wando, udima nzila ya kuja ng`wipolu kujunchobha ung’wizukulu okwe.

Niyo hangi waliati na nguno ya kukobha gete kulwa yombo nhale iyo akiyita unkuluye ombiti. Nose umona unamhala ombiti, akiganika hamo ung’wizukulu wane odimagwa alibha mabhuki ga mamunhu.

Agasola ilanha agantule gete, na lushiku Iwenulo bhakigwa bhanhu bhingi giki unkuluye mbiti odimagwa alibha mabhuki ga bhanhu, aganilwa no.
