A happy, well-dressed knight in shining armor, traveled silently day and night. He traveled long and far, and always with a song in his heart, in his search for the lost city of gold. Now this crazy knight grew old in his search for gold, the likes he never found. And so much so, till he started chasing shadows on the ground. The shadows talked and taunted him and made him pretty crazy. So much so, he started calling the Shadow, 'Pilgrim', like John Wayne. Well, anyway, he was losing his strength and started feeling lazy. When this shadow, finally gave him a clue. “Get your ass back on that horse, and ride!", this 'shade' replied. Don’t make me tell you what to do. And endlessly search for Eldorado, where all that gold awaits you. You crazy ass fool!"
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!" Edgar Allan
