የግዜር ስውር መዳፍ፣
ልክ እንደ ፓፒረስ፣እንደ ግብጦች መጣፍ
ወይም እንደ ጥንቱ፤ ያባ ጅፋር ምንጣፍ
ጨለማውን ስቦ፤ በወግ ሸበለለ
ሰማይ፣የጠፈር ዓይን፤ ብርሃን ተኳለ
ከዶሮ ጨኸት ውስጥ፤ አዲስ ጎህ ተወልዶ
ፍጥረቱ በሞላ፤ ማርያም ማርያም አለ፤

አልጋየን ሰብሬ
አንሶላ ተርትሬ
ባዲሱ ጉልበቴ
በታደሰ አሞቴ
ልኖር ተዘጋጀሁ
እንደ ጣዝማ ቅንጣት፤ ከሚጣፍጥ ሞቴ
ትንሳኤየን ዋጀሁ፡፡

እንደ ምትሀተኛ፤ ተስፋ ሲያታልለኝ
አዲሱ ማለዳ፤“ ዛሬን ሞክር ሲለኝ››
የዛሬው እጣየ
ከትናንት ጣጣየ
የሚለይ መሰለኝ፡፡

    This unique soul of acerbic pen and witty audacity,who has emerged as a luminous talent in post revolutionary Ethiopian cultural scene,has audibly departed from his hitherto grim and lamenting pathos of verses in this brilliant poem-”nega”.
    A marked sign of an unfettered gifted artist who has surrendered to Art and her timeless challenges. A poetic style of rhyming and cadence assertively his own signature and yet,with a loyal adherence to the Amharic ”getem” tradition..
    On a lighter vain,one is compaled to suggest that if only Bewquetu woould be tactful in dealing with ” subjects of paricularly senstive Ethiopian nature”. Between the sacred and profane,moral and amoral specific to that country’s ethos.

    Congratulations ,, Bewqetu.!. We are waiting agog for further future gems from your youthful quils.
