Wow! There is so much emotion here. It would take a long time to analyze this poem. It leaves me with an eerie feeling and I can't shake it. Excellent work.
Ahhhhh you made a new favorite poem from one of my old favorite poems. I love the story and your wonderful word choices.
Outstanding. A winner for sure.

No apology needed from Noyes or from anyone else. Brilliant in concept and colour, and in the creativity of your construction. (How about that for alliteration???)
It deserves to score well.

The stories you weave with your poetic talents never cease to amaze, amuse and entertain me. I expect to see this in the EC list for sure. Great mind pictures throughout this piece that drew me in and kept me there until the closing verse. Excellent!!!!!

This poem's story was captivating from beginning to end. I haven't read the Highwayman before, but believe me, you don't have to apologize for.

If this doesn't make the EC list, I will be very surprised.

An intriguing read masterfully written. This poem leaves me wanting ... to unravel the puzzlement of Rose's checkout and 'resurrection'—a dream or mistaken identity? An excellent and exceptional piece!

A bow to the master! Your creativity and gift truly amazes me.
I recognized the meter of the Highway Man right off and I think you have no need for the apology. I always look forward to your poems, Beth. Always a treat! Congratulations!
