Early morning drive..

This morning I was driving to a school district in Kokomo. It was early morning and dark except for the moon on the roadway. It was so stunning I wanted to pull off to watch the shadows (but there really wasn't any place to pull off and it was a lonely single lane road), but still I noticed the beauty and couldn't help but thinking of this wonderful poem:

"The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,
And the highwayman came riding..riding...riding..
The highwayman came riding up to the old inn door."

Alfred Noyes 1880-1958
