A Place Called Omaha


Omaha was developed
By a ferry company
It had so much potential
As many could plainly see

Laid out in 1854 originally
Curved around the Missouri river
A newspaper was created
So the news could be delivered

In eighteen fifty-five and six
A brutal winter settled in
Many losses at a Mormon camp
Healing had to begin

With the transcendental railroad
Omaha grew very rapidly
Today it is headquartered in Omaha
Still important as you can see

Don’t you just love history?
And geography is such a draw
I’ve enjoyed learning all about
About a Place called Omaha!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
