ΕΛΝΤΟΡΑΝΤΟ (Eldorado. 1849) [EDGAR ALLAN POE]

ΕΛΝΤΟΡΑΝΤΟ (Eldorado. 1849) [EDGAR ALLAN POE]

Ένας γενναίος ιππότης
χαρούμενα ντυμένος,
μ’ ήλιο και με βροχή,
τη λύρα του ζωσμένος
ταξίδεψε να βρει
την χώρα του Ελντοράντο.

Μα γέρασεν ο νέος
ο ιππότης ο γενναίος.
Με θλίψη κι η καρδιά του
γέμισε που δεν βρήκε
μήτε ίχνος καν μπροστά του
της χώρας του Ελντοράντο.

Κι όταν η δύναμή του
έφυγε απ’ το κορμί του,
συνάντησε ο ιππότης
σκιά προσκυνητή.
“Πες μου, σκιά”, της είπε,
“πού να ’ναι τώρα αυτή
η χώρα του Ελντοράντο;”

Και του ’πε: “Πάνω απ’ τα ‘Ορη
του Φεγγαριού σαν πας
και στην Κοιλάδα κάτω
σαν πας της Σκιάς,
εκεί τότε θα βρεις
εκείνο που ποθείς –
τη χώρα του Ελντοράντο”.
