Heard a poem in primary school back in the 60's and am/was enchanted by the rhythm of it. Opening lines,
" The road was a ribbon of moonlight
Beneath the jewelled.... (sky?)
And the highwayman came, riding, riding, riding........." and that's as far as I get.

Does anyone know the poem?

    Yes, it is " The Highwayman" by Alfred Noyes. You can find it on this site.
