Eldorado – 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!”

  1. Da, “Eldorado” se pare ca se afla pe fatza întunecata a Lunii. Poate chinezii ne-o vor dévoila si noua…n(pe)echinezilor ! 🙂 )))
    O zi binecuvântata cu Soare, draga Ana !

  2. Edgar Allan Poe o să rămână unul dintre autorii mei preferați din toate timpurile. Aceasta este o poezie absolut magnifică. De asemenea, îți recomand de la el și poezia ” Alone ”. Still my favorite from him !
