"Strazdiņš achieved a great deal in a relatively short time, creating dozens of paintings and drawings as well as penning over 400 articles. He was also the founder of the Piebalga Art Museum and a revered teacher of drawing and Latvian art history at Riga’s 1st Gymnasium and later the Academy of Art and the University of Latvia Faculty of Philology, testifying to his being a very hardworking man whose creative career was disrupted by the Soviet occupation.

beidz kasīties
vārā meitene

kāpēc tik bēdīga
milzīgā mētelī
tava nelielā seja
tik līdzīga
brālim
kas pāraudzis tevi
izstiepies kā
kāršroze

ko tu domā
un kāpēc nobijies
nekasies
vari apgulties
siltajā midzenī

rokā sažmiedzis
pelēko cepuri
pats nedzird
kā miegā
griež zobus

divus baltus
zāģus

smiltīs atrastais
cirslis vai kurmis
sastindzis
satrauktā aprisē
