Thread Name: Lyr Add: The Highwayman (Alfred Noyes)
Subject: The Highwayman, Noyes
The old Alfred Noyes poem, "The Highwayman" has been a family tradition of sorts. I have done dramatic readings of it and shared it, on occasion, in the midst of a song set as "something totally different." Has anyone done it as a song? How was it received (attention spans being what they are these days)?
