I found this postcard in with my grandparents' old stuff. They were from Russia.
If someone would be so kind as to translate this for us, it would be greatly appreciated. Especially interested in names, addresses and dates.

I believe it is written by a child. It is a poem

A boat is floating
A wave is fluttering
My beautiful Lisa is sitting there
Lisa is an angel, Lisa is a flower, Lisa is a bouquet
Lisa is a blue ribbon, Lisa is my dear

From your friend ?? Sorovich
