Edgar Allan Poe (1849)

Gaily bedight,
A gallant knight,
In sunshine and in shadow,
Journeyed long,
Singing a song,
In search of Eldorado.

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

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

“Over the mountains
Of the moon,
Down the valley of the Shadow,
Ride, boldly ride,”
The shade replied, —
“If you seek Eldorado!”
