    • POEM: The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes (9/30/2010 7:25:00 PM)

      I found this poem in grade school (1960's) and found it touched a nerve of sorry and loss that it still does to this day. I love to memorize and recite poetry, but this is one I am unable to do- my voice always cracks on the line 'He turned and spurred to the westward...' right after Bess makes her sacrifice, and I can't even read it to myself without getting teary-eyed, like I am right now. But please- have your editors look up the original text - there are several errors in the text on this site. In the first line it should read 'among the gusty trees' not 'upon', and in the line referred to above, it should be 'spurred to the westward' not 'spurred to the West' etc.
