Completely delightful! The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes is one of my most favorite poems and I loved how you patterned yours after that wonderful verse. Well done!!
This is such a delightful rhyme. I could picture myself back in 2nd grade in our school library as I read. You do an amazing job with the meter, it is so soothing.

I love "a torrent of silence"! Lots of good stuff here. Your wonderful creativity is much appreciated (and envied). Well done.

Delightful!
I love "The Highwaymen" and your parody of it. Well done.
What a lovely story in rhyme about third grade children visiting the library for the first time and the effect it had on the librarian. Keep Writing.

AH! From the first line, I recognized the echoes of the Highwayman, which only added to my enjoyment of this excellent poem. Great work!

Love it! I saw a smile on that stern face at the end, giving me a nice warm feeling after the amusement before it.
