Front: Inspiring California Redwoods

The Redwoods
Author Joseph B. Strauss
Builder of Golden Gate Bridge

Here, sown by the Creator's hand,
In serried ranks, the Redwoods stand;
No other clime is honored so,
No other land their glory know.

The greatest of Earth's living forms,
Tall conquerors that laugh at storms;
Their challenge still unanswered rins,
Through fifty centuries of kings.

The nations that with them were young,
Rich empires, with their forts far-flung,
Lie buried now - their splendor gone;
But these proud monarchs still live on.

So shall they live, when ends our day,
When our crude citadels decay;
For brief the years allotted man,
But infinite perennials' span.

This is their temple, vaulted high.
And here we pause with reverent eye,
With silent tongue and awe-struck soul;
For here we sense life's proper goal;

To be like these, straight, true and fine,
To make our world, like theirs, a shrine;
Sink down, Oh traveller, on your knees.
God stands before you in these trees.


"Art Ray" postcards were produced by brothers Charlie and Leslie Payne. They lived in and operated their post card business from a large travel trailer for many years. This travel trailer was a familiar sight along the Redwood Highway. Years after this postcard was made, the brothers settled in Crescent City, California, in the early 1950's.
