ElDorado

ElDorado - Edgar Allen 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!"


Everyone is looking for El Dorado. Some looking for money, others fame, a lot for love but all in all mostly searching for themselves. I turn 26 today and the journey has just begun. Cheers to El Dorado and Happy Birthday to Me.

  • No, I am a cancer. And Taurus is the only sign except the water signs that I like. But that is not a conclusion, its more of a guiding factor. So that makes you further more interesting :)

    Btw, I have the time and patience both :p
