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 - Thi 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!'

1849.
