I'd appreciate a translation; this is from an autograph book. Thank you!

7/4/2013 11:53 AM Here again this is written in a over poetic language which has been oldfashioned even in 1909. (Like the other poems not written by a poet but bequeathed in this type of teenage books)

My translation will not catch the flowery and blooming language.

Like Aurora awakens
in young spring
and on the flowerbed
the most beautiful rose is smiling
Like this you shall promenade in peace,
in bright and merry sense of mind,
your live shall be
on ways full of flowers.

To friendly remembrance of your classmate
Anny Tolotschno

Riga, November 23th 1909
