I'm trying to find a poem for someone. The poem was about the love between a young girl from a town and an outlaw? (I'm sure he was some kind of criminal) . It ends with soldiers coming to the house and the man finding out and trying to come back for his girl. In the end she shoots herself because she knows he is coming back and wants to drive him away. Any help on this is greatly appreciated.

Also, it's a pretty long poem from what I remember.

    you're pretty stupid
    remember the prussian army when they went through and decimated the platoons
    leave stupid
    and by the way that is not me it is someone else

    Your description sounds very much like 'The Highwayman' by Alfred Noyes, a great old English poem.
