Poem 3 - El Dorado by Spitoufs
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 oer 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!
