The Highwayman

1st April 2012

Based on the poem. all things UFO belong to someone else. All OC’s are mine, mine, mine … yeah, a little possessive there <laughter> PART ONE                                                 I    THE wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees,     The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas,     The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,     And the highwayman came riding—                      …
