Poem of the Week

We have been enjoying breezy nights with the full moon silhouetted against fantastic clouds.  It always makes me think of this poem, one of the first I ever memorized!

The Highwayman

by Alfred Noyes

The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees.   
The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas.   
The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,   
And the highwayman came riding—
The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door.
