Happy 78 Years Golden Gate Bridge
The Golden Gate Bridge Poem
Strauss PoemsWritten by Joseph P. Strauss, Chief Engineer, Golden Gate Bridge and Highway District
The Mighty Task is Done
The Mighty Task is Done Written upon completion of the building of the Bridge in May 1937
At last the mighty task is done; Resplendent in the western sun The Bridge looms mountain high; Its titan piers grip ocean floor, Its great steel arms link shore with shore, Its towers pierce the sky.
On its broad decks in rightful pride, The world in swift parade shall ride, Throughout all time to be; Beneath, fleet ships from every port, Vast landlocked bay, historic fort, And dwarfing all–the sea.
