....Iowa, on the Des Moines River, Bridge City as a name,
a very busy place here, and a friend to some in Maine,
a library with heart and giving unsurpassed;
gave time and treasure to a stranger, and the thanks are passed.
If you drive a tractor, John Deere is the name,
or send bills for a doctor, do both all the same,
this is the city where some of those are made,
there's a lot to offer here, even afternoon shade.
Top: This is Ottumwa
Middle: The Ottumwa Public Library - one of the best!
Bottom: One of many bridges over the river that divides the city.
