  •          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!'
