Safe and Sound, I am!
Yes, I have the back seat to myself
and with the rains pouring down
 the driving is somewhat slower than usual.

This cloud bank that we are heading into
looks like it is going to engulf
the roadway to the bridge span.

The closer we get to the center span
(181 feet (55 m) above sea level)
the windier and slipperier 
the driving becomes.

The darkness is surrounding us
and everyone knows to hold onto their wheels
because "white-knuckle" driving
is the norm on the bridge
in this kind of weather.

Oh doggy, we are off the expanse!
Phew, I really don't like stormy weather 
when crossing over the harbour.
Simple as that!
