This is an exciting tale based on the poem of Alfred Noyes (1880-1958), The Highwayman
set in the Forests of England of long ago.
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.
