A Place Called Omaha - Poem by Marilyn Lott
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!
