7/1/2013 11:42 AM Joanne, this must be another entry from a memory-book (kinda like the stuff that people write into high school yearbooks nowadays). The verse is absolutely standard fare: May you walk among scented flowers / on dew-watered meadows / may sunlight shine warmly on you / and melodious birds sing / May the bird's song, the sun's light / make your life happy / And when you are happy / never forget me.

The closing is the singularly uninformative "your loving relative", and the signature is Ungár Piroska. (Piroska consists of _piros_ "red" plus a diminutive suffix -ka, so Ruby can be a translation, but in actual origin it's probably more akin to Priscilla.)
