El Dorado!

Edgar Allan Poe: El Dorado

Gaily bedight,
A gallant night
In sunshine and in shadow,
Had journeyed long,
Singing a song,
In search of El Dorado.

But he grew old —
This knight so bold —
And — o’er his heart a shadow
Fell as he found
No spot of ground
That looked like El Dorado.

And, as his strength
Failed him at length,
He met a pilgrim shadow —
“Shadow,” said he,
“Where can it be —
This land of El Dorado?”

“Over the Mountains [I’m here right now]
Of the Moon,
Down the Valley of the Shadow,
Ride, boldly ride,” [I’m doing this!]
The shade replied —
“If you seek for El Dorado.”
