I'm old, now. But back in MY day the education system rewarded us
for memorizing narrative poems.  Robert W Service and Ruyard
Kipling...   Robert Frost and Emily Dickinson are all very well but
Longfellow and Coleridge and Noyes,  oh my!

The moon was a ghostly galleon, tossing on cloudy seas,

The Highwayman came riding up, up to the old inn-door ...
