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—                                                                                          Riding— riding—                                                                                                                                The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door.

Here are some of the pictures we drew to represent the first three lines of the poem:
