'The wind is a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees,

The moon is a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas,

The road is a ribbon of moonlight, over the purple moon,

And the highway man came riding-


The highway man came riding, up to the old inn-door.'

Verse 1 - The Highwayman - Alfred Noyes
