Omaha


You are the city of my childhood,
Where the Spirit moved over the water
To give to my spirit the highest good:
The Blood of the Lamb sent to the slaughter.

I recall your cozy neighborhoods
Beneath white clouds amidst the greenery,
Enraptured with the hills, the bluffs, the woods -
O, serenity of such scenery!

Alas! Misery of the Missouri
And the Platte Rivers flows into your streets,
So in your bricks we smell the potpourri
Of America - peat, wheat, and meats.

Omaha is America's heart,
And from her bosom I will never part.

Good-night? ah! no; the hour is ill
Which severs those it should unite;
Let us remain together still,
Then it will be good night.
