Chapter One. The Flowery Land

LINDA FLORIDA! Прекрасная Страна Цветов!
Linda Florida! fair land of flowers!
Так приветствовал тебя смелый испанец, искатель приключений, впервые увидевший твои берега с носа своей каравеллы.
Thus hailed thee the bold Spanish adventurer, as standing upon the prow of his caravel, he first caught sight of thy shores.
Было вербное воскресенье, праздник цветов, и благочестивый кастилец усмотрел в этом совпадении доброе предзнаменование.
It was upon the Sunday of Palms—the festival of the flowers—and the devout Castilian beheld in thee a fit emblem of the day.
Он нарек тебя Флоридой, и поистине ты достойна этого гордого имени.
Under the influence of a pious thought, he gave thee its name, and well deservedst thou the proud appellation.
С тех пор прошло триста лет.
That was three hundred years ago.
Миновало целых три столетия, но, как и в первый день открытия, ты достойна носить это нежное имя.
Three full cycles have rolled past, since the hour of thy baptismal ceremony; but the title becomes thee as ever.
Ты так же покрыта цветами, как и три века назад, когда Хуан де Леон впервые ступил на твои берега. Да и сейчас ты так же прекрасна, как в дни сотворения мира!
Thy floral bloom is as bright at this hour as when Leon landed upon thy shores—ay, bright as when the breath of God first called thee into being.
Твои леса все еще девственны и нетронуты, твои саванны полны зелени, твои рощи благоухают ароматами аниса, апельсинового дерева, мирта и магнолии.
Thy forests are still virgin and inviolate; verdant thy savannas; thy groves as fragrant as ever—those perfumed groves of aniseed and orange, of myrtle and magnolia.
Голубая иксия сверкает на твоих равнинах, золотистая нимфея отражается в твоих водах. На твоих болотах возвышаются огромные кипарисы, гигантские кедры, эвкалипты и лавры. Сосны окаймляют твои холмы, покрытые серебристым песком, и смешивают свою хвою с листвой пальм.
Still sparkles upon thy plains the cerulean ixia; still gleam in thy waters the golden nymphae; above thy swamps yet tower the colossal cypress, the gigantic cedar, the gum, and the bay-tree; still over thy gentle slopes of silvery sand wave long-leaved pines, mingling their acetalous foliage with the frondage of the palm.
Странная прихоть природы: в этом мягком, благодатном крае встречаются все виды растительности – деревья севера и юга растут бок о бок, сплетая свои ветви.
Strange anomaly of vegetation; the tree of the north, and the tree of the south—the types of the frigid and torrid—in this thy mild mid region, standing side by side, and blending their branches together!
