Noyes Red

The Noyes Red set is named after the poet Alfred Noyes for his poem The Highwayman. It's opening lines are, to me, some of the most beautiful.

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.

And I thought it's last line about Bess, the landlord's daughter, was perfect for a red and black bra set.

"Plaiting a dark red love-knot into her long black hair."

Also, I should probably give a shout out to the Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlee mini series' that were made in the 80's, for introducing me to both this poem and Tennyson as a child.
