Poem ELDORADO von Edgar Allan Poe

Ein wunderschönes Gedicht, das unseren Schiffnamen erklärt. ELDORADO heisst ja Paradies. Und wir waren dem Paradies ganz nah auf unserer siebenjährigen Weltumsegelung.

ELDORADO

by Edgar Allan Poe

Gaily Bedight
a galant knight
in sunshine and in shadow.
Had journied long
singing a song
in search of Eldorado.

But he grew old
this knight so bold
and o’re his heart a shadow.
Fell, as he found
no spot of ground
that looked like Eldorado.

And as his strength
failed him at lenght
he met a pilgrim shadow.
Shadow, said he,
where can it be
this land of Eldorado ?

Over the mountains
of the moon
through the valley of the shadow.
Ride, boldly, ride!
the shade replied
if you search for Eldorado
