Edgar Allan Poe

Here you will find the Poem Eldorado of poet Edgar Allan Poe


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

 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 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 for Eldorado!"
