Dick the Highwayman - A hundred and twenty years ago across the heath clad heights | 06-Apr-10

A hundred and twenty years ago across the heath clad heights
galloping Dick the Highwayman came riding through the night
while back where the roadway straggles twix Oxford and Wicham Vale his lordship cursed

'Galloping Dick' by Almey St John Adcock
Susanne Woodman

The last stanza may be:LOVERS STROLL ON THE STONY LANE THAT DIPS TO THE HIGHWAY STILL...AND YET WHEN THE NIGHT WINDS BLOW ...THEY HEAR THE SOUND OF CLATTERING HOOVES...AS THE RIDER PASSES BY.
This is a memory recall from 1950's...may not be accurate therefore!
Would be very happy if you do get hold of the
entire poem...and kindly email me a copy too.
Also,do check with publishers ORIENT LONGMAN...maybe they had this poem in
a collection meant for 10year old children at that time.
Good Luck! Hope you succeed!
Regards
