The Highway Men

When I was in Jr. High, I had to memorize and recite the poem, "THE HIGHWAY MEN." I loved that poem and often recite the stanza, " And the Highway men came riding, riding, upon the purple more." If anyone knows the author and where I can find that poem, Please Please send me the information. Im sure all the Literature books from the early 60's are gone, (1961-64). Thank you for your consideration.
