Eldorado

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!"
