[ALWAYS OPEN!] Could you help me translate these postcards?


NOTE: Even if somebody has already translated the postcard you are able to help with, please feel welcome to post in this thread with your translation anyway! :) I know that sometimes there is more than one way to translate a sentence, and besides, even if the sentence is a simple one, I would still like confirmation that a previous poster's translation was correct :) So you are very welcome to post here! :)

Hello, everybody! :) Over the years, I've received several postcards in different languages. Sometimes I even have no idea what the language of the postcard is! :D I created this thread hoping that some of you might be willing to help me translate these postcards :)

If you would like to help, please post the number of the postcard, the language of the postcard, and the translation of the text on the postcard :) Thank you all very much! :P

---

EDIT: I removed the pictures that were originally in this post, but I'll be uploading some more pictures sometime in the future :D Thanks to all who have responded so far!! :P

title : 送孟浩然之广陵 see Meng Haoran off to Guang Ling county
by 李白 Li Bai from Tang dynasty

故人西辞黄鹤楼
烟花三月下扬州
孤帆远影碧空尽
唯见长江天际流

An old friend go back to west at huang he tower
In March to Yang Zhou county in a flower blossom season
A small ship disappear on the horizen
Only the flowing water running through

Hi, upstairs. This is a very famous poem in The crescent moon of Tagore:

I wish I were a watchman walking the streets all night
chasing the shadows with my latern.

Hi, Nerdbird. This is a very famous poem in The crescent moon of Tagore:

I wish I were a watchman walking the streets all night
chasing the shadows with my lantern.

(my first reply here, if it helps I would be really happy)

I have a few cards in Russian, which I have trouble reading - for very different reasons.

I'll write down what I think I've got - it would be great if someone could help me fill in the blanks and correct my mistakes!

The first one:


Пламенный привет [из] столицы ...!
Я 25 буду ... диплом. Учусь на повара, кондитера.

And the second one:


Здравствуйте, Ханна!
... приятно, что Вы изучаете русский язык. Это трудный язык и иностранцы редко его изучают. Вы ...!
Я изучаю французкий язык и была бы счастлива, если бы Вы ... ... ... мной.
Мы ... бы быть ... друг для друга. Мой адрес:

I understand what I can read, it's making out the words that's the problem here for me ... :embarassed:

Can you also translate those into English for the curious sitting out here? It looks like Sutterling (earlier German handwriting) to me!

Здравствуйте, (Канна;)!
... приятно, что Вы изучаете русский язык. Это трудный язык и иностранцы редко его изучают. Вы -(умница;)!
Я изучаю французкий язык и была бы счастлива, если бы Вы ... ... ... мной. Мы (могли;) бы быть ... друг для друга. Мой адрес:

Sorry, I only can help with these 3 points.In the last I guess she wants to be pen pal or teacher to each other, however, just can not find the exact word.

Maybe a native Russian can be more helpful.And also looking forward to know the final version.

Here is the second one. I can't see the photo of the first, it won't show.

", !

c , .

Edited: OK, I see the first photo.
The word you are missing is "".
Also I believe he should have said " 25- () ."
And I also wonder if maybe this card was sent from Ukraine as this seems to be "" he is referring to in his/her message?..

"Hi, Hannah, I am so pleased to learn that you are studying Russian. It's a very difficult languages, very few foreigners try to master it. You are so smart! I study French. Would you like to become my penpal?"

It's possible. There are stamps of Staromikhailovka (which is in Donetsk region) . I checked on site Postcrossing in DNR - they use Russian ID RU- on postcrossing.com:)
