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.

Publisher/Series:

"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.
