Name the poem, author, and the artist who put this piece to music.

No fair googling!

I think it's "The Highwayman"
I'm clueless as to the author.

3. Loreena McKennett (sp?) put it to music beautifully
It is the Highwayman and I cannot remember the name of the author but I think his first name was Alfred.

I guess I did learn something through the alcohol-soaked fog at Yale.

5. Hey, I was partly right

I read the poem for my college Oral Interpretation class, but the professor didn't like it. He thought there were much better poems to study so we only spent about half a class on it.

6. I love that poem.
My sister used to read it to me when I was a little girl. I didn't know anyone had put it to music. That is awesome.
