Entry Dihy
Part of speech   name (poem title)
Author   Rabearivelo Jean-Joseph, 1931/09/16
  
Ritsodritso-baliha telo
Gobogobok' ampongatapaka,
Lokanga dimy indray dinidy
Sy sodin-taolana tsara loaka.

Io misonenika Ratovovavy,
Miakanjo manga marain-droa;
Ny lamba valaka mavokely;
Raozy gasy ao anaty volo.

Tsoakam-bero sy bararata.
Mihararetra any amoron' ala,
Sidintsidin' ny andro meva
Sa angidi-mangan' ny eny an' ony?

Io misonenika Ratovovavy,
Moana tahaka ny Fiadanana;
Valiha telo, ampongatapaka,
Lokanga, sodina no indray henony.

Fa injay ny molony mangovingovitra,
Ipololoran'ny nofinofy
Tsy toha intsony ka zary kalo,
Dia zary hira nony efa avy eo.
Mba hontsa koa Ravaviantitra,
Ka io mirotsaka mba handihy,
Mitari-joro ny ila sikiny,
Dia toy ny androny mirefarefa.

Tsy kalokalo na hirahira
No mampifelana izato endriny,
Ranomaso no mamonto azy,
Mahatsiaro ny maty rehetra...

Mahatsiaro... Toa fenomanana
Efa ho rendrika tsy ho hita.
Inty mihintsana ny lohataona
Ka zary fasana ravi-maina...

Dia mifanojo ny loha tondro,
Ny tondro mihantsin-dRatovovavy
Sy ny tondro efa fola-dRavaviantitra,
Samy tanteraky ny hazavana.

Mifanojo ka toa tetezana
Mampitohy ny alin-kely
Efa foy ery an-tendrombohitra
Sy ny andro maneno akoho.
