Eldorado Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849)

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!”
