Eldorado

Pan 33-34 875 Eldarado

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 shadow replied-
If you seek for Eldorado!

    I wonder if the knight would recognise the lost city if he stumbled upon it – Poe\’s poem is so sad – is Eldorado in those hills, it would be nicer to think of it being in a Valley of Light 🙂
