    • POEM: The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes (7/22/2010 7:23:00 PM)

      50+ years ago my mother recited this poem on long drives. I used to listen intently as my imagination created the landscape of Noyes' metaphor (or allegory?) . Last week I recited the first 2 lines of the 1st stanza. Her face lit up & within 5 minutes she recited the poem word for word. Not bad for a 79 year old. She had learned it as a child listening to her older sister memorizing it for an elementary school class. I intend to memorize it & recite it this Christmas as a gift and a tribute to her. I was & am a lucky son. Thanks, mom. You are the best!
