Inscription(s)

"dzied, vējiņi, klusi,
klusi,
nenes viļņus maliņā;
guļ jūriņas dzelmītē
mani mīļi bālēliņi."

рыбакам и морякам,
погибшим в море.
"Sing, sweet zephyr, gently, gently,
Carry not the waves ashore;
In the sea's tender depths slumber
My dear, beloved, brothers"

To the fishermen and sailors
lost at sea
