Check your firewall. By default, if you didn't have any, it would work (assuming is connected to vlan 6 and is connected to vlan 7). It's what router does, it routes anything it can. If it doesn't work, it's probably some firewall rule blocking it, or configuration mistake somewhere else.
Excessive quoting is useless and annoying. If you use it, please consider if you could do without it.

And you may need to check the Layer2 Switch in the middle too, i'd check if the plans are properly tagged and the port configuration is correct (between trunks & access)

There should be no further action on the Mikrotik needed (assuming no restrictive firewall rules). It should show two routes with flags DAC for both and

When routing traffic your source device need a route to your destination and your destination device needs a route back to the source.

So your host on must have a route added for with gateway= - and likewise the host must have a route to with gateway=
