The wind was a torrent of darkness...

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—
Riding—riding—
The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door...


The Highwayman, by Alfred Noyes

I remember reading that poem when I was in primary school - the line about the moon, in particular, stuck in my head - and it became the inspiration for my contribution to the  Dragon Dreams TIO challenge.

The recipe -

A blue moon (appropriate, as there will be two full moons in August this year!)
A murder of crows
A chill wind

Hope you like it!
