Moon Through Trees

I’m bemused at how artifacts from my distant schooling get triggered by random sights and sounds and sensations.  For example, on windy moonlit nights, I think of Alfred Noyes’s poem about the Highwayman… “THE wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees,
    The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas,  … “

The poem was worth reading then, and it’s still worth reading. Preferably out loud, to enjoy the rhythms. I suggest that you Google ”The Highwayman” if you can’t find your old literature books.
