Emily Dickinson “Āboliņš un bite” / “One Clover and a Bee”
The bilingual Velvet Series
To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,
One clover, and a bee,
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.
Lai būtu prērija, viens āboliņš un bite derēs mums,
Viens āboliņš un bite,
Vai sapņojums viens pats —
Ja bišu maz.

Drawings of the Ēvele Parish Priest Anton Georg Bosse in the Collection of the National History Museum of Latvia
Author: Anita Meinarte
Drawings of the Ēvele parish priest Anton Georg Bosse (1792–1860) became widely known in the late 19th century, in association with the Latvian Ethnographic Exhibition in 1896. Anton Georg Bosse portrayed mainly peasants that lived in the manors of Ēvele, Vecjērcēni, Jaunjērcēni, Ķempēni, Ķeiži, Ķemere and Rencēni, as well as individual inhabitants locally and from further afield, whom he deemed significant and worthy of immortalization. The drawings are dated, listing the day, month and year of creation. Each annotation also lists the name and surname of the subject, their occupation, place of residence – their belonging to a manor and farmstead.
