Poem Title:  Eldorado

Poem Category:  Englands Poets

Poet:  Edgar Allan Poe

Poet Biography: 
Edgar Allan Poe (1809 - 1849) is best known for his poems and short fiction. One of the pioneers of the detective story and the psychological thriller.



Poem: 
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!"
