    two more letters, can someone translate them ?

    1.

    Письмо
    Само
    Никуда не пойдёт,
    Но в ящик его опусти -
    Оно пробежит,
    Пролетит,
    Проплывёт
    Тысячи вёрст пути.

    2.

    А годы прохолят, как песни,
    Иначе на мир я гляжу,
    Во дворике этом мне тесно,
    И я из него ухожу.

    Ни почестей и ни богатства
    Для дальних дорог не прошу,
    Но маленький дворик арбатский
    С собой уношу, уношу.

    not so much different to what translate.ru produce

    The letter Itself will not go Anywhere, But put it in a box - It will run, Will fly by, Will float Thousand kilimeters of way.

    And years pass, as songs,
    I look at the world in other way,
    The court yard it too narrow for me,
    And I leave it.
    I dont' ask neither honours nor riches
    For long journeys
    But a small court yard in Arbat
    I carry away With myself.
    Russian is tough, let’s go shopping!
