Abstract: Caption: "The Tamiami Trail"; "'Neath the palm trees, under live oaks, trailing through the stately pines, By the lakes where red men bivouacked, decked with verdant, od'rous vines; From the gulf-side to the ocean, wonderful as fairy tale Are the legends of the beauty of the Tamiami Trail. Through the mystic shades of Glade lands where still waters idly sleep, Where the heron and the egret never-ending vigil keep; Where the covey, flushed and startled, swift-winged, clear-voiced, brown-hued quail "Nature's wards" are nesting, brooding runs the Tamiami Trail. Down the moss-hung vistas leading through the forest dim and cool, By flickering shadows resting on the bosom of the pool, Orchids blush betwixt the bowers, and, radiant and frail, Lend the lure of tropic rareness on the Tamiami Trail. On the east the roaring billows call across the living green To the westward, where the gulf-tide answers from an opal sheen. Deep unto the deep is speaking. Hark, the full toned 'Brother, hail.' Swelling eastward, swelling westward, on the Tamiami Trail. Radiant morning lights the pathway, generous noon the measure fills; Evening's mellow radiance bathing all the homes, and groves and rills, And the silences of night-time fill with music hill and dale - Call calling with the night-winds on the Tamiami Trail. Under sunshine, under moonshine, whether star-shine light the way; Whether dawn peeps over ocean, whether mid-night hides the day; Whether bright the day and sunny, whether storm, with wind and hail - The open way is ever on the Tamiami Trail. From the sunrise to the sunset; from the gulf to the ocean beach; From the wilds of fragrant forest where the still-ness utters speech. Far across the palm-decked domain, hear the joy-ous 'Brother, hail.' That is calling, calling, calling, to the Tamiami Trail."
