OMN: Oduu Gaddaa: Obbo. Ida’oo Odaa Boruu boqotan. ( Ado. 18, 2017)


Ni dhaatu hin booyan
Gaafa goonni du’e
Gaafa beekan kufu,
Odaa hundeen jabaa
Du’an gala hin taatuu
Seenaan kee haa ifu.
Gootaaf hin booyan
Itti dhaadataniit
Faarsanii garmaamuu,
Seenaan kee gaalanaa
Himaamsi hin xumuruu
Waraabamee hin dhumuu. Bilisee  Sabaa irraa
