So far I have enjoyed the Highwayman so much because it has made it very tense and mysterious because you don't know what is behind the door.

I think the poem is going to be amazing because the highwayman is going to be caught . Also I want to learn what kind of treasure did the highwayman catch.

I thought that The Highwaymen poem was really mysterious and stealthy and I would love for it to improve even more it had all the key information like metaphors such as 'the moon was a ghostly galleon across the cloudy seas. I hope that it tells us what is behind the old inn door because it left me in suspence because I NEED TO KNOW WHAT IS BEHIND THE OLD INN DOOR .

I think The Highway Men poem is amazing , because it has a lots of metaphors in it ... like "the moon was a ghostly galleon " ...that one is my favourite , I think the next verse in The Highway Men poem will be very good ,because at the end of the 1st verse it says he rode to the old inn door , and that was the last line , so in the next verse i'm looking forward to seeing what the next verse is about

This is one of my favourite narrative poems Isobel and I think the moon described in the metaphor as a ghostly galleon is particularly effective. I'm pleased you enjoyed that feature. Did you enjoy the repetition of words and phrases like 'moonlight'? If you read it aloud with a slow pace, the sadness of the story really comes through. Try to read 'the Listeners' by Walter De La Mare for a similar great narrative poem. Let me know what you think of it!
