El Dorado (by Edgar Allan Poe)

This poem reminds me of my previous boss, Sir Karl-Heinz. Working with him for almost three years, he taught me so many things especially in dealing with people outside my race. Definitely, everything is instilled in my mind. A traveller at heart, he is set to search “El Dorado” in Europe.

Gaily bedight,
A gallant night
In sunshine and in shadow,
Had journeyed long,
Singing a song,
In search of El Dorado.
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 El Dorado.
And, as his strength
Failed him at length,
He met a pilgrim shadow —
“Shadow,” said he,
“Where can it be —
This land of El Dorado?”
“Over the Mountains
Of the Moon,
Down the Valley of the Shadow,
Ride, boldly ride,”
The shade replied —
“If you seek for El Dorado.”
